We’ve been getting excited about our four legged friends over the last few weeks at Visit London.

As well as the new lion cubs at London Zoo, there’s been those pesky dinosaurs at The O2, and a very helpful 3D seagull installed at the London Eye. And let’s not forget the bees in Covent Garden.

So this week’s burning question is: what’s your favourite London animal?

Perhaps you’re a fan of the flamingos at Kensington Roof Gardens? Or you’re happy knowing the Ravens are still guarding the Tower after all these years, or that those dragons are still looking after the City of London.

Maybe you like the anatomically incorrect dinosaurs in Crystal Palace Park; the walrus in the Horniman Museum; the Savoy Hotel’s wooden cat, Kaspar, who rounds up potentially unlucky dinner parties of 13; or those highly cultured bees who live in a hive on top of the Southbank Centre.

Some of London’s animals are very socially minded; you can keep up with one of the lions on Trafalgar Square on twitter. Other great London animals in the twitterverse are the horse on Marble Arch and, naturally, a pigeon from Trafalgar Square.

Let us know what your favourite London animal is and why…

Meet one of the two new baby lion cubs at ZSL London Zoo.

Look at his big paws and soft fur. Squeee!
