What do wild animals do when we're not around? Find out with National Geographic's Crittercam. Safely worn by wildlife, Crittercams capture video, sound, and other information, giving us rare views of the private lives of animals. By allowing us this animal's-eye-view, Crittercams help to solve scientific mysteries. And what we learn from Crittercams helps us protect the very animals that wear them.
