Weighing less than one pound this two-day old Humboldt penguin is the epitome of adorable.

With its miniscule wings and perfectly formed beak, the fluffy, grey baby penguin is the newest addition to an adventure park and zoo in Pembrokeshire, Wales.

The youngster - which weighs a tiny 0.2 pounds - was born on Tuesday, exactly a year to the day that a pack of 24 penguins were released into a new enclosure at the park.

Zoo keepers are yet to discover the gender of the newborn and as such are holding off on naming the adorable youngster
