The world's first zebra crossing for penguins

Penguins crossing a zebra crossingThese pedestrians have got happy feet after zoo keepers installed the world's first zebra crossing for penguins.

The attraction's colony of African penguins regularly use a public thoroughfare during feeding time.

Every day the birds cross a wide footpath as they make their way from Penguin Beach to meet a keeper.

Staff noticed the excited animals were bumping into visitors and so installed the zebra crossing to keep them in order.

They have now learned to use the crossing and are a regular sight waddling across the road in line.

The crossing even has miniature red triangular warning signs - complete with penguins.
