Antarctica WebcamsIf you are looking forward to see the wilderness and the combination of rock, ice, snow and diversified set of flora and fauna that is different from rest of the world Antarctica is the best place for you. The place is simply blessed by nature with huge mountains and ice all over the place. The ice free zone in the state is just less than one percent. In the vastness you can just see polar bears, snow and penguins.The continent of Antarctica has no native population of its own because the living conditions are very harsh and they hardly support the existence of life. The huge continent has believed to have a population of immigrants in the summer season of up to three thousand, while during the cold season the population drops to two thousand. The lowest temperature recorded in Antarctica is 89 degrees Celsius. Vinson Massif is the highest elevation in the continent, with a height of almost 4,900 meters.
From October to April the webcams show breeding activities of Gentoo penguins. Most cams updated every 15 minutes. In the background you can see some icebergs and the rough mountain range of the Antarctic peninsula!
