Gentoo penguins Magic and Sphen were given the chance to practice their parenthood skills with a dummy egg but then the zookeepers decided they were ready to take care about a real egg, which was abandoned by biological parents. “They were absolute naturals and displayed great care for their egg, so much so, the team at Sea Life Sydney fostered a real egg to them from another couple who had two,” the aquarium said in a statement, adding that one dad is more mature and copes with parenting perfectly, and the younger one still has a lot of things to learn, but it is clear that he enjoys parenting. Zookeepers first noticed that the penguins had formed a very close bond ahead of breeding season. Sphen even gifted Magic a special stone, which zookeepers explained is “equivalent to proposing in the love language of penguins.” Signs that the pair wanted to start a family became clear during breeding season, when the pair began hoarding pebbles to build a nest.
