People Are Falling In Love With These Gay Penguins Hatching An Egg Together

Sydney Sea Life Aquariums first gay penguin couple is on their way to becoming parents and the duos egg-rearing saga is taking over Twitter.

Gay penguins Sphen and Magic, or Sphengic if you will, are a staple at the Sydney aquarium as the resident gay penguin couple. Granted, the two penguins arent capable of reproducing on their own, but that didnt stop the two from grabbing ice pebbles and creating a nest for an egg.

At first, aquarium staff gave Magic and Sphen a fake egg to take care of so they could learn how to incubate together during this years breeding season. But the two gay penguins were so good at egg-rearing that staff decided to give them a real egg from a straight penguin duo who had an extra one to spare. Thats right, Sphen and Magic are on their way to becoming parents.

Oh, and dont worry: Sphen and Magic are already performing their egg duties quite well. In fact, the two are so skilled at their jobs thatthere are days at a time where visitors cant even see their egg, good for penguin breeding.

It didnt take long for the news to hit Twitter and take over the site.

Everyone is falling in love with the gay penguin parents, despite the fact that their name is kind of weird.

On the other hand, Twitter fears the gay penguins will become the next battlefield in the Wests ever-looming culture wars.

Turns out they were right.
