The zoo is currently home to over 100 penguins from three species, king, Northern rockhopper and gentoo.

Gentoo chicks weigh around 98g when they hatch which is the equivalent to about half an avocado!

The first month is critical for the penguin chicks and keepers at the zoo will be keeping a close eye on the new arrivals to ensure they're fit and healthy.
