Baby penguin chicks make debut at London Zoo

Two baby penguins are the latest additions to the penguin colony at London Zoo.

One hatched on April 17, followed two days later by the other.

The tiny Humboldt penguin chicks are being looked after by keepers because their parents were unable to care for them. They have a big stuffed penguin to cuddle up to.

They're weighed every morning and hand-fed three times a day.

The baby penguins will be moved to the zoo's penguin nursery, which has a shallow pool for swimming lessons, when they are 10 weeks old.

Later, they'll be introduced to the other 70 penguins in the colony.
