Penguin Love on Valentines Day

Belfast Zoo posted this on their Facebook page and I could not resist sharing it here on my blog.

Penguin love

Forget diamonds, in the penguin world it’s all about the pebbles! Not just any pebbles, male Gentoo Penguins search for the smoothest ones to present to his chosen companion. If the female accepts the pebble and places it in her nest, she has accepted the male penguin as her mate!

Happy valentines day everyone!
