Park begins annual counting of animals

Staff at Drusilla's Park in Sussex have begun their annual counting of all the animals in their care.

The 'stock taking' is one of the biggest jobs in the zoo's calendar and ensures that all the park's records are up to date.

New births at the site over the past year have included a baby black lemur, penguins, a colobus monkey, fennec foxes, squirrel monkeys, prairie dogs, a flamingo chick, tamarins and marmosets.
