With three Sumatran tiger cubs adding vital numbers to the European conservation breeding programme, the birth of six critically-endangered Philippine crocodiles and the arrival of nine Humboldt penguin chicks, it's been a bumper 12 months at the zoo and all of the new additions will be added to the records.

Required as part of ZSL London Zoo's license, the annual stocktake includes every creature, with tiny frogs to towering giraffes all duly noted for.
