It took me way too many replays of James Blunt’s “Goodbye my Lover” to get over my first boyfriend, so imagine how a turtle couple at an Austrian Zoo is feeling. Their 115 year long relationship ended recently and, after last ditch counseling, the turtle husband has been forced to move out the family enclosure, the Huffington Post reports. What’s going to happen to the little Squirts?
Zookeepers realized things weren’t right when “wife” Bibi bit some of her husband Poldi’s tail off. I could see a lot of women resorting to these kind of tactics when their boyfriend forces their head down there once to often. Shame it’s a criminal offence.
“We get the feeling they can't stand the sight of each other anymore,” Zoo boss Helga Happ told The Austrian Times.
So there’s turtle warfare in Austria, but things are getting gooey in the Chinese penguin world. Adam and Steve, who live at Harbin Polar Land, have become the first same sex penguin couple to be given an egg to care for, TIME reports.
Zookeepers in China are clearly cooler than those at Toronto Zoo who “broke up” gay penguin couple Buddy and Pedro for mating purposes. Come on Toronto, homophobia has no place in the animal kingdom.
After attempting to steal eggs from their hetero-friends for years Adam and Steve have been feathering the nest and preparing for their baby. Too cute.
