This is so cool! A same-sex vulture couple managed to hatch an egg together, and are now raising the chick!
Mashable reports, “…the Artis zoo explained that after zookeepers found an egg on the floor of the vulture aviary they initially put it in an incubator. However, they later decided it would be best to place the egg in the nest that the two male birds built together. 😍 Amazing choice.
The two male vultures, who have reportedly been a couple for years, alternated sitting on the egg until it hatched, and are now caring for the chick together. They’re adjusting to parenthood quite nicely, and doing super adorable vulture dad things like regurgitating food to ensure their little one is fed.”
