Two gay penguins have successfully hatched an egg and entered mother/fatherhood and are proudly rearing the chick.
Z and Vielpunkt, both males gladly accepted their "Easter present" and set about hatching the egg as if they were born to it, at a zoo in Bremerhaven in northern Germany.
The two "fathers'' are by all accounts diligently handling their offspring. Z and Vielpunkt are reportedly part of a six- strong gay penguin community among the zoo's endangered Humboldt penguins who became famous when four Swedish females were brought in to unsuccessfully "cure" them of their homosexuality.
Like humans before them, the "cure" never worked. Its all in the wiring as they say!
