My favorite line from the Wikipedia article on homosexuality in animals:

“No species has been found in which homosexual behaviour has not been shown to exist, with the exception of species that never have sex at all, such as sea urchins and aphis.”

@RobinHood (We're pretty sure we're reading the line color coding wrong, but for the purposes of the joke...)

@RobinHood i love that the staff have enough observational knowledge to make this.

@RobinHood Darn I wish I could read that. .. I don't know why it would, but does anyone know if it exists in English anywhere?

Friends of friends gave us a translation for at least the meanings of the different colored lines :) according to them;
Red heart = Established couple
Blue broken heart = Breakup/failed romance
Purple heart with question mark = Infidelity/affair/friends with benefits
Yellow penguin = Friendship
Teal penguin = Former friends/prior relationship

@RobinHood I notice that, so far, none of the human-penguin pairings have produced offspring.

@RobinHood sorry, someone just boosted this and omg it even has little broken heart icons for when they aren't friends anymore! ;o; penguin heartbreak!
