Penguins of love

Penguins. Famed for their romantic bonding (? & ?), their defiance of stereotypes, their passion, and their parenting skills, they're now helping us out with our love lifes. (previously 1, 2, 3 etc)

I also like the male penguin has just 'pulled'. How you can tell I'm not quite sure.

Aww the story of Wendell and Cass (in the "defiance of stereotypes" link) is very sweet, and humorously written.

Rumors that they keep the neatest nest at the aquarium because they're gay are not true.

"These are penguins," said Mitchell. "They poop in their nest. Nobody's got a clean nest."

If you look closely you can see him texting his nestmate telling them to go out for the evening.

They are also kickass dancers.

Um, Wendell, is there something you're not telling us?

It's so funny how certain animals gain prominence at certain times--why penguins now? those movies? global warming? ... We seem to go thru phases culturally where the focus is on one type alone. Dogs, Dolphins, Sharks, Bears, Pigs, ...
