SCRIPT
Animals from all around the world, some more willing than others, had their measurements taken at London Zoo on Thursday as part of its annual stock-take.
Every creature from frogs to meerkats, lions to penguins was measured up - but not all of them seemed to want to cooperate with the zookeepers!
The Zoo regularly records the heights and weights of the more than 800 different species that call London home as a way of monitoring its residents' well-being.
