Most people have never seen a mara before but these adorable creatures are impossible not to spot roaming freely across the zoo. They're often confused for deer but are actually in the same family as guinea pigs and the capybara.
Crocodiles have the strongest bite of any animal in the world! See the smallest of its species at the zoo for yourself and say hello to our three baby African dwarf crocodiles and their parents.
Stunning photographs from the ZSL Animal Photography Prize are now on display, supported by Lumix UK. Check them out on your next visit to the Zoo!
