The San Francisco Zoo has held its annual 'March of the Penguins', introducing a new batch of young penguins to their larger family - and a new, bigger pool.

Four adolescent penguins were paraded through the zoo grounds to their new home on 'Penguin Island'.

They were cheered on their way by crowds of well-wishers, while zoo staff were on hand to help them adjust to their new surroundings.
