Day and Night

From 7:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Pacific Time, you're watching the live cam while it's daytime in San Diego. While it's dark, from 7:30 p.m. to 7:30 a.m. we rebroadcast that morning's stream.

HAMADRYAS, GELADAS...
AND FRIENDS

Foraging, grooming, exploring, relaxing—it's all part of a primate's day! Enjoy watching either our Hamadryas baboon troop or our Gelada monkeys (they share an exhibit with Nubian ibex, a wild goat species with large curved horns) in their habitats in Africa Rocks at the San Diego Zoo. You can tell the two species apart by their distinctive features: Hamadryas are tan-haired with red faces and rears, while Geladas have dark colored faces with light eyelids and a red hourglass-shaped patch of skin on their chests.
