Critter Cam Gallery

Want to see a bathing hawk up close or an opposum in its den? Check out these videos, taken with our motion-capture surveillance cameras, to see just a few of the critters that have stopped by NHM while we were building the Nature Gardens!

Critter Cams are just the beginning! On NHM's YouTube channel, you can see our herpetology curator make frog calls by the pond in the Nature Gardens, and much more!
