2 gay penguins in Sydeny’s Sea Life Aquarium have given birth to a new girl. The two male penguins have become proud dads.The baby was born on October 19 and the aquarium just shared the news online posting a photo of the unnamed baby.
The baby has become first sub-Antarctic penguin chick since the penguin colony first joined the Darling Harbour family in November 2016, the park said in its website. “The baby chick will act as an ambassador for its generation at Sea Life Sydney, and will help educate the public on the precious species and the plight that they face in the wild,” it added.
Here is their post.
