    Reside in the Central Park Zoo, New York City
    Chinstrap penguins
    Were given an egg to hatch, and raised a chick named Tango
    Inspired the children's book 'And Tango Makes Three' (2005) by Justin Richardson, Peter Parnell and Henry Cole
    'And Tango Makes Three' drew protests from conservative parents.
    Silo left Roy for a female named Scrappy (2005), leading him to be adopted as a poster boy for 'ex-gay' ministries.
    Richardson admitted, 'All penguins look exactly alike…. Roy lies on his tummy after eating, but other than that, it's hard to know who's who.'
    The egg they were given to hatch had been abandoned by a mixed-gender penguin couple.
    Zookeeper Rob Gramzay said 'They did a great job' of raising Tango
    They were together for six years, an unusually long time since chinstrap penguins normally engage in serial pair-bonding.
