What would it be like to be a harbor seal? Wouldn't it be fascinating to go on the prowl with lions? With assistance from the National Science Foundation and the National Geographic, Crittercam makes it possible, both on television and on this fine website. The Crittercam device (which fits safely and securely on animals) was initially conceived by Greg Marshall, who got the idea after observing a remora clinging onto a shark off the coast of Belize, and thought that it might be possible to attach a camera in a similar fashion. From the main page, visitors can learn about the Crittercam itself, and watch a number of clips of seals, lions, hawksbill turtles, and humpback whales in their natural environments. Moving to the Previews area, visitors can watch streaming clips from the television program as well. Finally, visitors can also download a screen saver that features a pilot whale.
