Penguin breeding season starts at RZSS Edinburgh Zoo - Wednesday 2nd March 2016

Keepers at RZSS Edinburgh Zoo placed the annual penguin nest rings and pebbles into Penguins Rock on 1 March to kick off the penguins' annual breeding season. The pebbles are the gentoos' version of engagement rings, which the males use to court a potential mate. As soon as the pebbles were placed in Penguins Rock, the black and white birds made a mad dash to pick out the perfect pebble in order to woo a future partner. - Edinburgh United Kingdom - Wednesday 2nd March 2016 (15 images)
