Penguin Fathers Care for a Baby – level 3
At Sydney Aquarium, two penguins named Sphen and Magic which are in a same-sex relationship are caring for a foster chick. They incubated a spare egg from a breeding couple.
The two fathers are taking turns feeding and keeping the chick warm. When the chick grows its adult feathers, they will teach it how to swim.
Difficult words: foster (surrogate, adoptive), incubate (help hatch an egg), spare (extra).
