In 1894, alien zoologists visited the zoo and used a time scanner to study the evolutionary histories of the exhibits. When they tried to leave, the aliens crashed their timeship in the zoo, releasing a green fog laced with temporal radiation that devolved the zoo's animals. The Paternoster Gang came to the zoo and returned everything back to normal. (PROSE: The Evolution Episode)

One day Charlotte Pollard was watching the dolphins at the zoo. To her it was like she felt them smiling. (AUDIO: Storm Warning)

In 1984, the London Zoo owned a female Tibetan Yeti (Yeti Traversii) named Mahamaya. Mahamaya was successfully bred with a male Yeti from Peking, which was considered something of a diplomatic coup. Their offspring was named Margaret for Margaret Thatcher, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom; however, at a press event to announce the naming, young Margaret bit her namesake.
