Watch the curious cubs LIVE at the Seneca Park Zoo!

The Zoo’s nine-week-old lion cubs might not be on exhibit, but that doesn’t mean you can’t see them. Thanks to the 13WHAM ZooCam, you can now get an exclusive sneak peek of the cubs whenever you want.

The Cam has been installed in a behind-the-scenes area of the Lion Exhibit, giving you a bird’s eye view of the cubs enjoying everything from playtime to chow time to naptime.This is the only opportunity the public has to see the cubs until they go on exhibit.

The Zoo’s A Step Into Africa, a can’t-miss attraction featuring elephants, adult lions, baboons and goats, is now open! Swing by to visit the Zoo’s residents who can’t be seen on this fantastic cam.

There’s a baby boom going on at the Seneca Park Zoo. With the recent births of a Bornean orangutan, two lion cubs (not currently on exhibit but able to be seen on the 13WHAM ZooCam), a golden lion tamarin and a goat kid trio, 2013 is gearing up to be action packed.

As one of Greater Rochester’s most popular family attractions, the Seneca Park Zoo is home to an ever-changing collection, which makes each of your Zoo visits unique. Regardless of the time or day, you’re sure to see something new! Our state-of-the-art A Step Into Africa Exhibit is the only one in the U.S. that focuses on the Ngorongoro Crater region of Tanzania. The exhibit treats our visitors to a simulated African Safari, right here in Rochester! While embarking on this safari-in-your-backyard, people can learn how humans and animals cohabitate in this unique conservation area. Three African lions, which came to the Zoo from an animal park outside of Pretoria, South Africa, joined our African elephants and olive baboons, becoming the new stars of this exhibit.

In addition to the animals, A Step Into Africa provides hands-on learning fun for everyone. A stationary double-decker bus and Kopje rock provide exceptional up-close viewing opportunities of our lions. An archaeological dig zone for budding archeologists noses up to our Olive Baboon Exhibit and a Maasai Hut is home to our goats. And don’t forget to say hello to Genny and Lilac, the only African elephants in New York State, during your safari!

When you leave that exhibit, our African black-footed penguins, polar bears and sea lions await you at the Rocky Coasts, which features impressive nose-to-nose underwater viewing. Round out your animal experience by visiting our white rhinoceroses, meerkats, snow leopards, Mexican wolves and much more.

Stop by for a day-long visit or simply an afternoon stroll. Seneca Park Zoo is a must-see attraction and most certainly “The Natural Place for Families.”
