The gay penguin community will be flapping their beaks over this.

Even love can’t keep a “gay” penguin couple together.

Two male penguins who have developed a budding romance at a Canadian zoo will be separated so they can mate and breed with their female counterparts.

Zoo officials told the Toronto Star that Buddy, 21, and Pedro, 10, were spotted engaging in courtship and mating behavior similar to those of female and male penguins.

The romantic gestures include sleeping together every night, defending their territory, making mating calls and constantly standing alone together.
