Gay Penguins Stole an Entire Egg Nest From Lesbian Penguins
A pair of two male African penguins at a Dutch zoo, who made international headlines last year when they stole an egg from a heterosexual couple, have now stolen the nest of a lesbian duo, DierenPark Amsersfoort said in a Facebook post. Zookeeper Sander Drost told Dutch News that the gay couple is taking turns sitting on the eggs to keep them warm. But, Drost said, the eggs are likely unfertilized and will not hatch because they were laid by a lesbian penguin couple.

DierenPark Amersfoort, a zoo in the Dutch province of Utrecht, posted about the bold males on social media earlier this week. This gay penguin couple said, "I want it, I got it! I want the energy of this Dutch gay penguin couple, who apparently stole an egg "when no one was looking" and are now trying to raise it as their own pic. The Dutch penguins are not to be confused with a different same-sex penguin couple who made headlines earlier this month.
