Roy and Silo

“Roy and Silo are chinstrap penguins at Central Park Zoo in New York City, who were inseperable for over six years. The two males exhibited ‘escatic behavior,’ entwining their necks, vocalizing to each other, and having sex. When other penguins laid eggs and began incubating, they found an egg-shaped rock and tried to hatch it. A zookeeper gave them a fertile egg that needed care and they enthusiastically incubated it until a chick, named Tango, hatched. Roy and Silo raised her until she could go out into the world on her own.”
