BERLIN - A German zoo says a pair of gay male penguins are raising a chick from an egg abandoned by its parents.

Bremerhaven zoo veterinarian Joachim Schoene says the egg was placed in the male penguins' nest after its parents rejected it in late April.

The males incubated it for some 30 days before it hatched and have continued to care for it.

The chick's gender is not yet known.

Schoene said the male birds, named Z and Vielpunkt, are one of three same-sex pairs among the zoo's 20 Humboldt penguins that have attempted to mate.

Homosexual behavior has been documented in many animal species.


The zoo said in a statement on its website that "sex and coupling in our world don't always have something to do with reproduction."


I found it a little bit on the odd side. I didn't even think penguins could be gay LOL.
What do you think?

Yep. Penguins can be gay. So what? There's no reason for homosexuality to be limited to humans.

In my grandmothers farm back in the days, we used to have this goat that was gay. We would put it in with all the female goats but it wouldn't do anything. Then when you put a male in there, he would go straight for the male and try to mate. They tried to mate it with a female for years then finally gave up. XD

So it's not unusual to see animals being gay. Some aren't even gay yet they have sex with the same gender, just for the pleasure I guess. Dogs, monkeys, horses are all known to have sex with the same gender sometimes out of pleasure. *shrugs* not that big of a deal.

I saw this. Thought it was real cute. :3
Do you know penguins stay with the same partner all their lives? Makes it even cuter that they'll be raising the baby
