Penguin "Sweethearts" Celebrate 22nd Valentine’s Day Together

At a table decorated with balloons and red roses, Kohl and Zela, celebrated their 22nd Valentine’s Day together over a romantic fish dinner. The couple, who happen to be a pair of African black-footed penguins, marked the occasion in New Orleans, at the Audubon Aquarium. "While most species of penguins mate for life, there is still a divorce rate," said Audubon’s senior aviculturist, Tom Dyer. "We've seen our share of penguin heartbreak, infidelity and sometimes joyful reunion here in our colony. Kohl and Zelda, however, are spending their 22nd Valentine's Day together. They are Audubon's sweethearts." — See photos at Buzzfeed
