Our live camera feeds are accessible daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. (Mountain Time Zone). Limiting the feeds to these hours allows our followers to see the giraffe during the day, and to see some of the other animals who shift through the space on most days. Eliminating nighttime live video provides better safety for our nighttime event guests, our staff and our animals.
This giraffe cam is being made available temporarily, while El Paso County’s COVID-19 restrictions require our buildings to be closed to the public. This will allow our guests to get a glimpse of our giraffe when they prefer to stay indoors.
Keep in mind this view shows just one stall in our barn, which is typically used as a birthing room and nursery for new calves. Now that our two-month-old calf, BB, is exploring other areas of the barn, you may see other members of our herd in this space from time to time. You may also see the stall empty while we shift giraffe to other areas to clean or train. There is much more space that this cam does not allow you to see, which comfortably houses our herd of 17 giraffe. They also have access to our outdoor yards on days when the weather is comfortable for them (at least ~40 degrees and sunny). Although we are located on a mountain in Colorado, you would be surprised at how many winter days allow our herd to be out in the sunshine – it’s a lot!
