Folly Farm in Pembrokeshire has welcomed some new arrivals - a group of Humboldt penguins.

Visitors will soon be able to see sixteen of the new warm-climate penguins at the adventure park and zoo, near Kilgetty.

It is part of a European Endangered Species Breeding Programme.

Their home is a new £500,000 enclosure - complete with a nursery, beach, saltwater pool and play area with plants and rocks - all the ideal conditions for breeding.
