Two baby penguins abandoned by their parents have been named after characters from the Flinstones.

Bamm-Bamm and Pebbles are being hand reared by keepers at Whipsnade Zoo in Bedfordshire.

Once the pair get their first waterproof coating they will move into the Zoo's penguin training pool where they will learn to swim and feed in the water.
