Measuring penguins

Zookeeper Vicky Fyson weighs a penguin during the London Zoo's annual weigh-in on Aug. 22 in England.

 

The measurements of all 16,000 animals in the zoo are collated in the Zoological Information Management System, from which zoologists can use the data to compare information on thousands of endangered species.
