The Independent published this video item, entitled “Toy penguins used to care for chicks named in honour of Queen’s Platinum Jubilee” – below is their description.
A group of Humbolt penguin chicks at ZSL London Zoo have a rather unlikely caregiver looking after them – a toy version of themselves.
The chicks were given names paying tribute to famous people and events from the last 70 years – Hillary, Apollo, Bobby, Bernie, and Mac – to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee.
The toy penguin is being used to help with their care while the penguins are being hand-reared as their parents are unable to look after them.
