Gay penguins at London aquarium are raising a ' theyby '. The 4-month-old, who has two moms, will be the first Gentoo penguin at Sea Life London Aquarium "not to be characterized as male or female."

Despite this, however, newborn penguins are routinely given gendered names and colored tags at Sea Life — until now, that is. The adopted chick of Rocky and Marama has been tagged with a "gender-neutral" purple band for identification purposes.

As for why this particular chick was chosen to be the aquarium's first "genderless" one, Sea Life noted that this chick "captured the Aquarist team and guest's imaginations after it was successfully adopted by two female penguins."

"It made sense to continue to allow it to be identified more naturally by staff and guests at the aquarium in the future."
