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.

One of the Zoo’s most famous structures was designed by Lord Snowdon himself and today we're saddened by the news that he has passed away.
Ralph Armond, Director General at ZSL, said: “Lord Snowdon will be sadly missed. He created a truly unique piece of architecture for ZSL London Zoo. He was inspired by the graceful movements of flying birds and conceived a pioneering aviary that looks almost weightless - like a bird. It is an iconic piece of architecture so we are proud to have something very special to remember him by.”

Meet the 'Skywalker' hoolock gibbon, a new species discovered in the rainforests of China.
A team of scientists, led by Fan Peng-Fei from Sun Yat-sen University and including ZSL's Dr Samuel Turvey, used the force (and a comprehensive scientific study of gibbon genetics) to determine that the Skywalker is in fact a completely distinct species of gibbon.
It was named Skywalker because the Chinese characters of its scientific name mean "Heaven's movement" and the primates spend their time high in the rainforest canopy, but also because the team are big fans of the Star Wars films.
