Isabelle Aron

Feeling crap because it's January and that? Cheer yourself up by spending the rest of the day looking at these seriously cute pictures of baby animals at London Zoo. The zoo has just finished its annual stocktake and found that they have more than 750 different species and a whopping 17,480 different animals. They also asked the public to vote on their favourite new arrivals in 2015 – the results are in and it was Edward the sloth who was voted number one, who's named after Edward Scissorhands because of his two claws on each paw. And we're not surprised he scooped the top spot – just look at that little guy! 

See which other zoo babies made the top five:

5. Patella the colobos monkey

4. Pip the penguin

3. Gernot the gorilla

2. African hunting dog puppies

1. Edward the sloth
