Season four continues with episode 5 on Wednesday 13 December at 8.00pm on Channel 4. There are only around 50 Javan green magpies left in the world, and two of them live at Chester Zoo.
Keepers are desperate to breed youngster Permata with older female Metina, but the problem is that he still has his juvenile blue feathers. Will he mature and can he help breed the next generation? Chester’s bachelor pad of lemurs is in for a shock with a female on her way to their island.
In the lemur world females rule the roost, so the boys’ peaceful existence may be coming to an end. The zebras also have a newcomer to their herd: female Okoth, who starts to make a play for power, which doesn’t go down well with top zebra Florence. And the zoo’s three Komodo dragon sisters need some space from each other. Keeper Isolde has an unusual plan to take them for outside walks.
