Amazing Penguins at Edinburgh Zoo gaze at their Lego models


A group of penguins at Edinburgh Zoo in the UK met a larger-than-life counterpart made entirely of 3,200 Lego bricks. The Lego penguin was one of the first models to arrive for the upcoming world-exclusive BRICKLIVE Ocean display which will run from July 6 to September 17.

Penguins are a group of aquatic flightless birds. They live almost exclusively in the Southern Hemisphere, with only one species, the Galapagos penguin, found north of the equator. Highly adapted for life in the water, penguins have countershaded dark and white plumage, and their wings have evolved into flippers.

According to CNN, The London Zoo is celebrating Pride month in honor of its gay penguins

The ZSL London Zoo is home to the famous gay penguin couple, Humboldt penguins Ronnie and Reggie.
To celebrate the pair and similar animal couples, the zoo plans to give a "Pride makeover" to its Zoo Night event on July 5. In addition to regularly scheduled Zoo Night festivities, the zoo will teach about gender, mating and same-sex animal pairings.

Zookeepers have also designed a special banner for the Penguin Beach home where Ronnie and Reggie live.

The banner reads, "Some penguins are gay. Get over it," a homage to Stonewall's "Get Over It" campaign against LGBT bullying.
