We return to Chester Zoo for a fifth series of the behind-the-scenes documentary, and there is a lot of trouble with mating.

This time, the zoo have problems with two vampire crabs which despite living together for a year are not having children; while Ruby the two-horned chameleon is acting aggressively to her male suitor; meanwhile two sister orang-utans are impregnated by the same male, and the meerkats have been put of breeding by some new aardvarks that have arrived.

The Secret Life of the Zoo is on Channel 4 at 20.00.
