Two newborn penguins get their health check-up!

One of our favourite things about springtime is the arrival of baby animals, so we can't stop looking at these super sweet pictures of newborn Humboldt penguins.

This adorable pair recently hatched at ZSL London Zoo – just look how tiny they are!

The cuties are two of the ten chicks that have been born at the zoo in the last few weeks - which is a record-breaking amount to kick start the breeding season.

Zookeeper Zuzanna Matyasova, who was snapped giving the birds a health check, said: "It really is proving a fantastic year for our penguins and I'm delighted with how well all ten of our chicks are doing. I feel like a proud mum!"

You can even pop by and see the fluffy birds at their special chick nursery at the zoo's Penguin Beach exhibit. We'll race you there!
