CARING GAY PENGUIN COUPLE ADOPT ANOTHER NEGLECTED EGG AND BECOME DADS FOR THE SECOND TIME

Back in 2018, the staff at sea life Sydney Aquarium, Australia, noticed a same sex penguin couple – Sphen and Magic. The two male penguins used to take swims together and were rarely apart.

Soon after the breeding season started, the caring couple began collecting stones for their nest. Then the staff noticed they were trying to hatch a rock. Impressed how well Sphen and Magic cared for their “egg”, the zookeepers placed a real egg for them to foster.

Everyone at the Aquarium was happy when the proud dad’s gave life to their first Chick – Lara. This year, Sphen and Magic become foster parents again. They have successfully nurtured an egg for the second time.

“The parent birds treat the chick as their own. They lovingly feed it, keep it warm, and defend it from any passers by,”the zookeepers said.
