I'm sure by now you've heard of gay penguins both in the wild and in captivity, but have you heard of criminal gay penguins? Oh yes, it's a thing.

A male gay penguin couple stole an egg from a heterosexual penguin couple at the DierenPark Amersfoort Zoo in the Netherlands. Zoo officials say the gay couple have been spotted incubating the stolen egg.

"There is also a gay couple among the breeding couples, the males breed on an egg that they have taken over from a hetero couple at an unguarded moment. The gay couple take good care of the egg, the males both breed alternately. Homosexuality is more common in penguins, it is noteworthy that this couple has now also obtained an egg."" said a zoo official.
