Rainbow the penguin survives after egg was stood on by mother

Rainbow the penguin.

When Rainbow was just an egg her mother stepped on her, leaving many at London Zoo to fear she would not survive.

The baby penguin was in an incubator for 10 weeks while being cared for and has now been released to join her fellow penguins and is swimming in their enclosure.

Now fully rehabilitated, she is easy to spot with her rainbow band on her arm.
