The first week back to work after Christmas is always hectic, but count yourself lucky you're not a ZSL London Zoo keeper this January.

The Zoo's keepers will be head counting every animal during their annual stocktake, taking place on Tuesday 5th of January 2010.

Over 750 different species of animals call the Zoo home, including meerkats, giraffes and zebras - so keepers have a mammoth count on their hands.

The last year has seen many new inhabitants to the Zoo including the first lion cubs born in a decade, a new Komodo dragon and pair of nosey aardvarks.
