London and Chester Zoo’s Annual Animal Stock Take

Home to more than 850 different species, zoo keepers welcomed in the New Year armed with clipboards as they made a note of every single animal. The compulsory annual count is required as part of ZSL London Zoo’s zoo license, and every creature, from the tiny leaf cutter ants to the huge silverback gorilla is duly noted and accounted for.
