If you've never seen a pink-backed pelican, now you can see them at the Maryland Zoo at Baltimore.

The zoo has taken in Plato, Penelope and Pandora, who are eight month olds.

They were hatched at Disney's Animal Kingdom, but now they'll be at home with other birds at the zoo's Penguin Coast.

 The pink-backed pelican is native to Central and South Africa. In the wild, they share habitats with penguins.
