Cute baby penguins born

Egg-cellent news the first gentoo penguins chicks have arrived at Edinburgh zoo this year.

Gentoo penguins tend to live in ice-free areas near Antarctica, and make special circular nest made out of stones, moss and feathers.

Their steam-lined bodies mean they can swim up to 22 miles and hour underwater, faster than any other diving bird.

Senior penguin keeper at the zoo Dawn Nicoll said: "We are really happy that the first of the gentoo penguin eggs have hatched".
