小编摘要:两只雄性企鹅相爱了……现在真是一个基情四射的年代。让我们赶紧来了解一下这个发生在哈尔滨的有趣故事。许多知名国外媒体都报导了这则趣事!

 

First came Roy and Silo and their children’s book, And Tango Makes Three, and then Buddy and Pedro made headlines as a gay penguin couple who were being separated by the Toronto Zoo. Now, meet China’s same-sex penguin pair, 0310 and 067 — or as NewsFeed likes to call them, Adam and Steve.

Adam and Steve have a pretty lush life at Harbin Polar Land in northern China. While zookeepers at the Toronto Zoo were quick to separate their “gay” penguin couple for mating purposes, keepers at Harbin Polar Land embraced their eccentric penguins by not only giving them a same-sex wedding ceremony worthy of Leslie Knope, but also providing them with their very own baby chick to care for.

Adam and Steve had a history of stealing eggs from other more traditional couples during hatching season. So when keepers noticed a mother of recently hatched twins struggling with her parenting duties, they decided to give Adam and Steve the baby they were looking for.

While it might seem, well, different for a penguin chick to have two male parents, in fact, all penguins are known to have natural instincts for parenting, as males and females equally share in the responsibility to incubate and care for their chicks, before and after they’re born. For this reason, keepers at Harbin Polar Land are confident that Adam and Steve’s chick will grow up to be just like its penguin peers.

 
2005年10月,“0310”5岁,“067”刚刚出生,它们跟其他13位兄弟姐妹一同从新西兰来到哈尔滨极地馆。
 
随后的3年半,饲养员赵毅逐渐发现,早已成年的“0310”喜欢独来独往,从不跟其他雌企鹅亲近。去年7月,在企鹅繁殖期前夕,赵毅惊奇地发现,9岁的“0310”和4岁的“067”常常腻在一起,互相吹气、抓痒、睡觉,“行为相当像情侣”。他认为可能是馆里企鹅“雌雄比例失调”造成了它们被同性吸引,于是决定将它们分开一阵子,再为其重新配对。
 
让赵毅没想到的是,在他们围起栅栏、把“0310”关起来后的一段时间里,“0310”就在栅栏里不停地走来走去,“067”坚定地等在外面,不吃不睡。几天后,“0310”脚掌磨出了血,“067”也瘦了一圈。赵毅心疼不已,决定不再“强迫”它们分开。到了繁殖期,馆里也曾试图给它们找“女伴”,但它们根本不正眼瞧那些雌企鹅。“配对”均告失败。从此“二人”目无旁人地出双入对,形影不离。
