The Zoo: episode 1
Bird keeper Adrian Walls explains why you should watch 'The Zoo':
Launching London's only living rainforest
Getting ready for the launch of ZSL London Zoo's Rainforest Life even saw keepers turning their hand to construction.
Like the vultures in episode one, our bird team, headed by 'The Zoo' favourite Adrian Walls, has been using an innovative training technique to help ultramarine grosbeaks feed their young in a highly competitive aviary.
Gorillas in the midst
Bringing the African rainforest to the heart of London, visitors can get breathtakingly close to our colony of western lowland gorillas in a natural and engaging environment.
Spot a TV star
Meet the real stars of 'The Zoo', the animals. Visitors can get up close to our animals including the gorillas, lions, penguins and even our vultures. Buying tickets in advance online is the fastest and cheapest way to get into the Zoo.
Adopt a leading lady
She may have recently given birth but she's still a real character who enjoys stealing food and can often be seen walking around with sacks on her head.
Support 'Jookie' and you'll be helping her relatives in the wild, as ZSL runs gorilla conservation programmes in Africa.
One of the highlights of episode 1 is watching spider phobics overcome their fear of their new found eight-legged friends.
