Gay Penguins Feeling Broody

A couple of gay penguins in the Polarland Park in Harbin, north east China have been separated from the rest of their colony after they were found replacing the eggs of straight couples and steal them with the aim of hatching them themselves.

"One of the responsibilities of being a male adult is looking after the eggs. Despite this being a biological impossibility for this couple, the natural desire is still there," explained a keeper.

"It's not discrimination. We have to fence them separately, otherwise the whole group will be disturbed during hatching time," they added.
