Giant tortoise

Zookeeper Grant Kother weighs and measures a giant tortoise during ZSL London Zoo's annual weigh-in on Aug. 22, 2012 in London, England. The height and mass of every animal in the zoo needs to be recorded. The measurements are collated in the Zoological Information Management System, from which zoologists can use the data to compare information on thousands of endangered species.
