It's been a record breaking year for bird keepers at Bristol Zoo. Huge numbers of chicks including some endangered species have hatched over the last few months. Among the new arrivals are 10 baby flamingoes - some of which had to be hand reared.
Rob Rouse, keeper at Bristol Zoo, explains what the future holds for Winnie the baby pygmy hippo.
Winnie the pygmy hippo was born at Bristol Zoo Gardens in February and has since enjoyed romping around her enclosure with her father Nato and mother Sirana - who is ferociously protective. Today she was allowed outside for the first time.
Fewer than 2,000 pygmy hippos survive in the wild.
Staff at Bristol zoo are taking extra care of a giant tortoise with a nasal infection. Helen, as she's known, had to be taken to the vets after attempts to treat her on site didn't work. It wasn't easy as Hannah Gamlin reports.
A giant Tortoise at Bristol Zoo has been feeling a bit under the weather. That's because she's been diagnosed with a cold!
Helen, who weighs 14 stone was checked into the Zoo's clinic after keepers found that she had the sniffles.
It took four men to lift the 32 year old Tortoise who's been at the Zoo for 11 years.
She was given a nasal flush and is now on the mend
Helen is an Aldabran giant tortoise – a species classified as ‘vulnerable’. Giant tortoises can live up to 150 years old.
Bristol Zoo has unveiled its latest arrival - a baby pygmy hippo. Winnie is three weeks old and never far away from her mother Sirana, who is very protective of her.
Winnie's birth is a big success for the zoo's captive breeding programme - it's thought less than 2,000 of the animals survive in the wild.
Keepers at Bristol Zoo start their annual stock take today as they count the number of animals at the zoo in Clifton. Detailed records are kept of every animal birth, death, arrival and departure. The annual headcount is completed each January as a requirement of zoo licensing.

Pictures of two baby armadillos have been released by Bristol Zoo Gardens.
The youngsters have spent most of their life huddled up in a nest box but at two months old, they are starting to emerge and root for food.
The pair are six-banded armadillos, mainly found on open plains and closely related to sloths and anteaters.
