Not only humans can love. And not only humans can destroy stereotypes of sexuality. Dotty and Zee have recently celebrated the 10th anniversary of being together. They are both males. And they are penguins. At first, the couple were left to their own devices, only a few years after they got together it was discovered that both are males. And they refused to be separated from each other.
Dotty and Zee have built a nest every year, a clear indication that they wanted to start a family. 2009 was their lucky year as they were gifted an egg that was rejected by it’s mother. The penguins took on the shared responsibility of incubating the egg and acted like good fathers by sharing the feeding work and doing everything necessary for the baby.
