A baby penguin from a species under threat has taken his first steps in water at London Zoo.

Pickle, who is ten weeks old, is a Humboldt penguin.

He was nervous about the water to start with, but was soon splashing around in the training pool for baby penguins.

His keeper, Vicky, says: "Pickle has lost almost all of his fluffy baby feathers now, and he's nearly ready for his debut in the big pool."
