    It's time to line up your otters, put all your frogs in one place, and make sure every black-capped Bolivian squirrel monkey is present and accounted for — that's right, the London Zoo's annual census is in full swing.

    For the next five days, zookeepers will catalogue every meerkat, sort every spider, and take ant population approximations to confirm the presence of every animal living under its care.
