Young gentoo penguins from the 2004 South Georgia set of young fauna. South Georgia and the South Shetland Islands are among the main breeding areas for these penguins. The adults are instantly recognisable by a white stripe on the top of their otherwise black heads.
A young weddell seal from the 2004 South Georgia set of young fauna. This is one of the most common seals found in the Southern ocean. It is one of the few seal species that can have twins, and normally gives birth in less than five minutes.
A young king penguin from the 2004 South Georgia set of young fauna. It spends the first 4 to 6 weeks of its life balanced on the feet of its parents, protected by an abdominal pouch: the parents take turns to care for it during this period.
A young wandering albatross from the 2004 South Georgia set of young fauna. These albatrosses have a larger wingspan than any other bird. Adults sometimes gorge themselves so much that they cannot fly.
