(Two Gentoo penguins, Inca and Rayas, at a zoo in Madrid, Spain, have been building a nest together every six years in the hope of starting a family. They have now been given their own egg to look after.
Inca and Rayas aren’t the first gay penguins to hit the news, and homosexual behaviour in penguins was first recorded in 1910, by polar explorer, Dr. George Murray Levick, but his account wasn’t published as it was deemed “too shocking”. Funnily the zoo keeper who looks after them said that although the pair were extremely close, they were not actually gay, but simply “the best of friends”. I call that being in denial.)
