Just when we thought penguins couldn’t get any cuter.
Twitter user @freakingdani’s aunt was enjoying a stroll on the soft sandy beaches of South Africa when she spotted two lovebird penguins enjoying a romantic moment.
my aunt just came back from South Africa and she sent me this video she took of this lil penguin couple pic.twitter.com/TkBpT5z9RV

The unnamed videographer watches as the pair walk flipper-in-flipper and stop, as if to watch the waves roll onto the golden shores. The short video should be an inspiration to all of those out there having trouble finding love.
I wanna grow old with my man just like this

Of course, it may leave some feeling bad and with some pressing questions that need answers. For instance, Nathan (@PrimNathanIOW) is a bit confused as to how @freakingdani’s aunt spotting Penguins on her trip to South Africa.
I’m sorry why is no one asking what 2 penguins are doing in South Africa

As were a few others, who likely picture these adorable birds primarily in frigid environments.
I was today years old when I found out there were penguins in Africa https://t.co/9ZgTEKXHDN

Which lead to both a proper response:
Contrary to popular belief. Penguins don't just live in Antartica. They also inhabit South America, Africa, Australia, & New Zealand.

And a great use of a GIF.

The romantic video will surely leave some feeling bad about their current status, including Bassbrains (@ErickVilla41), who’s not enjoying the perils of the dating world.

But he wasn’t the only one stricken by the apparent romance and love between these two flightless birds.

Maybe Parks and Recreation wasn’t too far off with its episode featuring a gay penguin marriage!
