Back in 2018, Sphen and Magic formed their relationship. They would go swimming together and never break their bond with one another. Soon after the beginning of the breeding season, the pair got to work constructing their very own nest.

They are the only couple in the Aquarium who share the same sexual orientation, and they live there. The two were given a spare egg to hatch after the zookeepers notice them trying to hatch a rock.

Lara was the first child to be born to the couple. She has since left home and is making the most of her adult life. But both Sphen and Magic love the feeling of being parents. They created a rock out of nothing.

“So when we needed a foster couple, they were an obvious choice. “After the success that Sphen and Magic had in incubating and raising Lara two years ago, we knew that if we needed to foster another egg, they would be a great option,” a spokesperson for the Aquarium said. “If we needed to foster another egg, they would be an excellent choice.”

The couple can hardly contain their joy at the prospect of having a second child. They develop a unique connection with each of their offspring. The parents will care for the chick as if it were one of their own. They lovingly feed it, keep it warm, and defend it from any passersby.”

Recently, Sphen followed their kid closely on his little expeditions away from their nest. The baby chick is now of an appropriate size to embark on some humble explorations.

“Penguins, including the Gentoo penguin, are one of the many species in which male-male or female-female pairs occur frequently. This is also true for many other species. Eggs that have been left behind in the wild have a chance of being taken in by other animals; however, it is possible that the egg in question is sterile, which is the reason it was abandoned. a representative of the company stated.
