An African gay penguin couple at a Dutch zoo stole lesbian penguins’ egg in an attempt to become fathers.
The penguin couple stole the egg from the other penguins’ nest at Dierenpark zoo in Amersfoort. In fact, they took another egg in November last year, but it didn’t hatch, and the couple remained childless.
According to zoo keeper Sander Drost, the new eggs are also unlikely to hatch, especially after knowing that the couple they stole the egg from are two female penguins, and will not be fertilized.
Anyway, the two male penguins are currently taking it in turns to sit on the egg, while the other one is searching for food.
Penguins are breeding twice a year, and the female couple will likely build a new nest soon.
