Weight watchers: how do London Zoo’s animals measure up?

What could be cuter than photos of animals? Perhaps some snaps of them getting weighed, measured and categorised at the annual London Zoo weigh-in?! Every year, each of the zoo’s 16,000-odd critters are either looked over to make sure they’re fit and healthy. Methods for the more awkward animals included wall-mounted tape for measuring the giraffes, while owls were tricked on to the scales via a cunning perch-like contraption. But what more could you want than a penguin on a tiny electronic scale? Look at him. Couldn’t you just pinch his wickle fwipper?

Visit these cuties at London Zoo this weekend.
