We were told that penguins have the most romantic love stories in the animal kingdom. They brave the endless Arctic winter, the cold, finding that one penguin soulmate. And when they find their mate, they stay together for the rest of their penguin lives.

How sweet and moving, right?
Nestling each other's necks is a sign of their love…
But this one video caught by the National Geographic shatters this perception. As it turns out, even in the penguin kingdom, cheaters and homewreckers are present. Such is the case in this raw footage of a male penguin attacking the “lover” of his penguin wife.
Watch the epic and sad footage below:
First, they beat each other up with their wings. Seeing they are equally matched, they then called up the female to choose. Turns out, the wench is already in love with the homewrecker!
That moment she chose the other male 🙁
Not having it, the husband attacked again. This time, going for the kill by gouging out the eyes of the “lover”. Both male penguins ended up bloody but the female penguin chose her lover again. Defeated and heartbroken, the husband walked away, crying in anguish….
The husband penguin was bloodied and lost his wife to the other penguin 🙁
Personally, I feel so bad for the husband penguin. And I feel sad too that the lovely myth of one soulmate for the rest of their lives is shattered… Sorry to say, but indeed, nothing lasts forever 🙁

The World’s Oldest Cat is 31 Years Old and He’s Still Got More Lives Left!
Cats are said to have 9 lives because of their uncanny ability to escape harm. But this one cat seems to have a whole lot more than just 9 lives!
Nutmeg may look like your typical tabby cat. You can tell that he's a little more advanced in age because he's not as playful and energetic as kittens. But hey, we bet you wouldn't have guessed that Nutmeg just celebrated his 31st birthday. That's about the age of 141 in human years!
Nutmeg celebrated his 31st birthday - which is equivalent to 141 human years!
26 years ago, Nutmeg chose his forever home when he showed up in the backyard of the Finlay family. He was taken in back in 1990 as a stray who befriended the Finlays' cat, Spice. The family took Nutmeg to the vet to treat an abscess on his neck, and this is where they learned that Nutmeg was around 5 years old....
The Last Great Auks Drove to Extinction By Villagers Who Thought it’s a Witch
This story reminds us that man remains to be the most dangerous creature on Earth.
No story about extinction is good and this one is not an exception. Meet the great auk - a bird that has been extinct since the mid-1800s.
Also called garefowl, the flightless seabird was part of the family Alcidae in the order Charadriiformes. Its body measures approximately 30 inches (75 cm) in length with short wings that span less than 15 cm. It has a black head and back, white chest, and a characteristic white spot between the bill and eyes; its black bill has about eight transverse grooves. Although it is by no means related to penguins, great auks were called "penguins" back then.
