Couples love to hold their hands together as a sign of being one and how they love each other. We usually see lovers doing that. But seeing this romantic penguin couple hold hands together, that quite unusual and surprisingly romantic.
According to an expert in the nonverbal science of love and professor of the Udemy course, “Body Language of Love and Dating,” Vanessa Van Edwards:
“In a social situation, in a way that’s kind of a sweet gesture because it’s saying, ‘I want people to see that we’re holding hands. I don’t need to have a super firm grip right now, but I do want to signal to people that you’re mine,'” Van Edwards explains.
Well, that’s possibly what this African romantic penguin couple wants to tell all of us.
