Your Own Personal Penguin

“There really is no such thing as a typical penguin; each of our 49 magellanic penguins is a total individual, with different wants, needs, and interests. The most interesting part of getting to know the penguins is the relationships between the birds. Some penguin pairs have been together for over a decade, while others spend a few breeding seasons with a bird, then move on to someone else.” [Lappin/Bernalwood]

Remember the zoo’s big gay penguin breakup drama of 2009? Penguins, they’re just like us.
