Pelican crossing at ZSL London Zoo
Thursday 25 February 2010
Keepers at ZSL London Zoo created their very own ‘pelican crossing’ recently - as our pictures show
Seven eastern white pelicans, each weighing around 10kg, were carried across the Zoo to their summer watering hole.
The birds were moved from their usual home because the severe cold weather kept freezing their pond.
Zookeepers are now confident that temperatures are on the up and that the pelicans will soon be basking in the sunshine – you heard it here first!
