Headcount underway at London Zoo

The annual headcount at London Zoo is taking place today, the Zoological Society of London reports.

Beasts were ordered to report for muster at 0600, on a day only the penguins could love. Stamping their paws in the cold, the animals patiently await the arrival of the screws, who will note their species, rank and serial number.

ZSL keepers are taking stock of over 750 species. New additions to the zoo’s collection include the “first lion cubs born at the Zoo in a decade, a new Komodo dragon and a critically endangered mangabey baby,” it says here.

Whether numbers will tally with the keepers’ expectations remains to be seen. Stay tuned to your local radio station, and keep an ear out for escaped animal alerts.
