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.
Take part in one of the UK's most unique 10k events with the ZSL London Zoo Stampede. This charity race involves running through the oldest scientific zoo in the world before heading out into the beautiful Regent's Park!
Well, someone is certainly happy that it's Friday!
Our Humboldt #penguins couldn't get enough of their fishy treats ahead of Valentine's Day. The colony here at Penguin Beach were treated to some heart-shaped ice blocks as they begin their breeding season.
Love is in the air at Penguin Beach as our colony of Humboldt penguins begin pairing up for breeding season!
Keepers marked the occasion by offering our flippered residents a Valentine's-themed treat of their favourite fish, served in heart-shaped ice blocks.
One of Kumbuka's favourite activities is admiring himself in the mirror, and we can see why. He's the most handsome western lowland gorilla we know!
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.
