A pair of male penguins has adopted an abandoned chick, now about a month old, at a zoo in Bremerhaven, Germany. Zookeepers had placed the egg near the two male penguins in the hope that they would care for it as their own. The experiment, so far, has worked. The chick hatched at the end of April and the proud fathers Z and Vielpunkt -- who have been a couple for years, the zoo said -- quickly acted like surrogate parents. Every day they clean, protect and feed the little penguin a solid diet of pre-digested fish. The young penguin is not yet named and its gender is still unknown.
