Meet ZSL London Zoo's family of oriental short-clawed otters. Our 'romp' of otters love to live in their furry families!
Our otters at ZSL London Zoo are Oriental small-clawed otters and are actually the smallest species of otter. While most otters prefer to live solitary lives, this species are sociable creatures and live in family groups.
It's officially the Year of the Monkey and in less than seven weeks' time you'll be able to meet our brand new group of Hanuman langurs. Native to South Asia, this species will be part of our exciting new exhibit, Land of the Lions, which opens to the public on March 25th! #yearofthemonkey
We're inviting kids to bring their teddies for a health-check this February half term, with Vets LIVE - a week of interactive family events celebrating the incredible work of the Zoo’s vets between February 13th and 21st.
With a packed schedule of talks and activities, families will learn about the huge variety of work carried out by the Zoo’s vets and keepers on a daily basis, from microchipping meerkats to checking the tigers’ teeth.

Native to Indonesia’s Lesser Sunda Islands, and named after the island of ‘Komodo’, dragons such as Ganas are the largest and heaviest lizards in the world. They have survived on Earth for millions of years but are classified as ‘Endangered’ due to competition with humans for their habitat.
Our latest Curious Creature is the fabulously fuzzy gentle lemur. This species is the only primate in the world to make its home in a marshland habitat and can be found on the amazing island of Madagascar.
