Zoo to split up 'gay' penguins

Zoo to split up 'gay' penguins, Zoo to split up ‘gay’ Canadian penguins. Zookeepers in Toronto, while “fascinated” by male African penguins who appear to be a couple, even displaying signs of mating rituals, plan on splitting up the pair for the sake of captive breeding.

Toronto Star:

“They do courtship and mating behaviours that females and males would do,’’ one keeper said in an interview.

Those behaviours include making a “braying’’ sound, almost like a donkey, as a mating call. They defend their territory, preen each other, and are constantly standing alone together. In fact when the Star visited the exhibit this week Buddy emerged from the water, followed a few moments later by Pedro. The two huddled together for quite some time.”  zoo split gay penguins, gay penguins split breeding, african penguin, same-sex penguin fascinates zookeepers toronto,
