A same-sex penguin couple at Berlin Zoo are taking good care of their adopted egg and protecting it from the rest of the colony.

Skipper and Ping were given an egg after it was abandoned by the sole female king penguin. It's hoped they will successfully rear the zoo's first chick since 2002. Susie Ferguson spoke to the zoo's curator Heiner Klös.
