We spent the last Monday bank holiday in Twycross Zoo in Warwickshire. The weather did not turn out great at midday, almost causing us to cancel our outting. However thanks to the brilliant weather later in the afternoon and my trusty 75-300 mm zoom lens, we managed to capture some (not so) wild lives at quite close distance.
The zoo is notable for having the largest collection of primates in the world. It is the only British zoo to exhibit all four species of great ape, including the UK's only group of breeding bonobos (which joined the zoo back in 1992). It is also known for its large collection of chimpanzees, some of whom famously featured in television commercials for PG Tips tea.
Unfortunately I couldn't remember half of the animals here, any input would be appreciated.

And this is probably the wildest wild life around in the zoo ... playground monkey
