When a male penguin falls in love with a female penguin, he searches the entire beach to find the perfect pebble to present to her. In addition to the two answers below, I should point out that penguins don't search for perfect pebbles - they grab any pebble, steal pebbles from other nests, even from burrows of other animals.
I watched a BBC nature documentary recently (of course it was David Attenborough narrating it!) in which they filmed penguins doing exactly this.
I heard that when Adelie penguins are choosing a mate the male searches for the perfect pebble and presents it to the one he wants as his mate.


Again, the idea that the male builds a pebble nest first and then starts the courtship fits in very well and Occam's razor would favour this one rather than some forced antropomorphisation of penguins. Gentoo penguins are less likely to stick together than other penguins and can be found in small groups, sometimes with other species. As you'll see there penguins do give female penguins pebbles, but not as a token of affection nor because they are shinny. But you make the exact same mistake the person writing the original claim does, and that is assuming all penguins are the same.


I guess a penguin who doesn't bring any pebble wouldn't stand a chance, but any pebble will do and both mates bring them in!
