Baby bamboo sharks that have been bred at Legoland in Windsor have taken up residence inside a themed nursery.

The four seven-inch babies can be visited at the Duplo display, in the new Atlantis Submarine Voyage aquarium.

The nursery is complete with Lego bridges and a train set.

They have been born after a breeding programme at the Winkfield Road attraction by members of the Atlantis team.

The four are the size of an outstretched palm, but will grow to over one metre when they reach maturity and join 18 other sharks in the attraction.

A juvenile Zebra shark raised last year has also now been transferred into the aquarium's main display.

Legoland re-opens for visitors on March 15.
