FROM GAY PENGUINS TO GAY FLAMINGOS

May 2007

Some of you may remember the Gay Penguin business in Berlin Zoo a while back. This is a piece about a pair of male flamingos who have adopted an egg. Ahhh. Anybody seriously interested in the wide variety of sexual behaviour in the animal kingdom should read Bruce Bagemihl’s book “Animal Exuberance”, which is in the library. However, I recommend only the first half, which is a review. The second part, which is a “theoretical” interpretation, seemed a bit barmy to me.
