Penguins propose to each other with pebbles! 11 Insane Explanations For The Weirdest Behaviors In The Animal Kingdom | 11 Insane Explanations For The Weirdest Behaviors In The Animal Kingdom

What experts say: A male penguin presents a female with the smoothest pebble he can find as a token of love. If the female finds him suitable, she'll add the pebble to her nest.
The truth: Male penguins are notoriously cheap. Even though most male penguins have healthy 401k's and diversified portfolios, they refuse to drop cash on engagement rings. Female penguins usually accept cheap pebbles in hopes that down the road, the male will loosen up and at least spring for a Hulu Plus subscription.
