London Zoo Holds Annual Weigh-in of Animals

London Zoo held its annual “weigh-in” of its animals on August 26.

The exercise, in which creatures have their vital statistics measured, “is an opportunity for keepers at ZSL London Zoo to make sure the information they’ve recorded [throughout the year] is up-to-date and accurate,” according to a media release from the zoo.

“Each measurement is then added to the Zoological Information Management System (ZIMS), a database shared with zoos all over the world that helps zookeepers compare important information on thousands of endangered species.” Credit: Zoological Society of London via Storyful
