Bonzos Latest: This Weeks Studdy
Famous dog, just after he had finally been christened with the name 'Bonzo'. He appears with a swollen eye after fighting with a wasp. George Ernest Studdy (1878-1948), was the creator of 'Bonzo', a small dog with saucer-like eyes and indiscriminate breeding who first appeared in the Sketch in 1922. The 'Bonzo' craze swept the world resulting in postcards, annuals, toys and other merchandise. Studdy also produced a large body of work for the Sketch before and after Bonzo including his later creation, Ooloo the cat. His early cartoon dogs were simply known as the 'Studdy Dog' until readers demanded a name and Bruce Ingram, the ILN editor, suggested his immortal moniker.

Penguin breeding colony research
Penguin breeding colony research, with researchers and photographers in the background. Located at St Andrews Bay, this is the largest breeding colony of king penguins (Aptenodytes patagonicus) on South Georgia. Recording tags attached to fledging juveniles transmit data by satellite. Studies here and at other king penguin colonies reveal the foraging patterns of these birds. This penguin is found in Antarctic and sub-Antarctic regions. It is a social animal, living and breeding in large colonies of thousands of individuals.
