Giant Panda Cam

Welcome to the Smithsonian's National Zoo's Panda Cams, where you can watch giant pandas Tian Tian and Mei Xiang. Be sure to toggle back and forth between Panda Cam 1 and Panda Cam 2 using the tabs at the top of the video player to get the full Panda Cam experience.

Please Note: All Smithsonian museums, including the National Zoo, continue to be closed to support the effort to contain the spread of COVID-19. Animal keepers and veterinary staff remain working on-site at the Zoo and at the Conservation Biology Institute in Front Royal, Virginia, to provide the usual highest quality care for the animals. The animal webcams remain online, but volunteers will not be operating them, so animals may not be visible at all times.
