Sphen and Magic live at a Sydney aquarium. Officials say the two have become "inseparable" before breeding season and started collecting pebbles to create a nest, much like other couples do to keep their eggs warm.
In order to keep them involved, the aquarium first gave them a dummy egg.
Sphen and Magic were naturals. They showed great care for the egg so keepers gave them a real egg from another couple for a taste of parenthood.
