‘Gay’ penguins split as one falls for female
It sounds like your average Hollyoaks storyline - but with penguins...
Last week we brought you the rather heartwarming story of a pair of gay penguins in China who adopted a chick after its mother was struggling to look after it.
Thanks to past stories such as the world’s cutest thief we knew that penguin news goes down well with the average studentbeans.com reader - but we had no idea just how popular our gay penguins would be.
Luckily for you and your insatiable need for news of homosexual polar birds, we’ve got more...
A zoo in Toronto has announced that Buddy and Pedro, the ‘original’ gay penguins, have split up after Buddy has found love elsewhere - with a female.
The two birds became big news after videos of them sharing their nest and enjoying each other’s company.
But their happy home is no more after zoo officials separated them, stating that they needed to reproduce as they were an endangered species.
Buddy can now be found spending time with 19-year-old Farai, while Pedro is yet to replace his best bud Buddy - though it’s been said that it’s ‘not for lack of trying’. Lad.
