Penguins on a diet and other calorie conscious animals.

Do you think animals can eat all they want without worrying about getting chubby? Or just be picky , not eat, lose weight and not care about it?

Well, you are wrong.

The over 16 000 animals of the London zoo are being very careful these days as it’s time for their annual weigh-in. Pot-bellied penguins, huge lazy turtles, tall giraffes and all the other zoo animals have to be measured and weighed, one by one, sometimes with really creative measuring techniques.

These days it’s all about scales, tape measures at the zoo: we think doing this audit is possibly the funnest job ever, have a look at these pictures if you have doubts. And of course, if you are in London, go have a look!
