Here are a couple of ways:

In:= Count[IntegerDigits[Mod[24^24*55^55, 10^56]], 0]

Out= 55

In:= Length[Split[IntegerDigits[Mod[24^24*55^55, 10^56]]][[-1]]]

Out= 55

The first method assumes the only zeros are trailing zeros. The
second does not make this assumption by does assume there are
trailing zeros.
