When they were introduced to the general population, they immediately started displaying a desire to become parents. She's demonstrated little to no interest in her eggs and none have hatched successfully.

King penguins are the second largest species of penguins in the world, behind the emperor penguin.

Zookeepers are not entirely sure, however, if Skipper and Ping's egg is actually fertilised.

Said Maximilian Jäger, a Zoo Berlin spokesman, to the NYT: "We just had to put the egg in front of one of them, and he knew just what to do".

The penguins have proved to be quite a team as Jaeger told DPA they are "acting like exemplary parents, taking turns to warm the egg". After a female king penguin abandoned her egg, zoo keepers thought Skipper and Ping might want to adopt it. InsideEdition.com's Mara Montalbano has more.

The gay penguins, who arrived to Berlin from Hamburg in April, had been showing signs they wanted an egg for a while. "On Tuesday, penguin fans, journalists and a television crew from the country's public global broadcaster gathered to watch Ping sit on the egg".

In 2018, a pair of male penguins stole a chick from its parents at a zoo in Denmark after they were "neglecting" the baby to go for a swim. While Antoinette laid the egg, it was left in the care of another momma penguin, Diana, who has previously raised two other penguin chicks.

Zahmel added, "This is the first time we have tried to have a same-sex penguin couple incubate an egg".

In 2017 a pair of male griffon vultures hatched an egg at the Artis Amsterdam Royal Zoo.
