Shedd Aquarium's Closing Meant A Rare Opportunity For Animals To Visit Each Other—And They Were Mutually Enthralled

In a sea of bad news (yes, I'm using sea puns), it's always nice to see animals being as cute as ever. Since the aquariums closed down, this penguin got to visit fish it would never come across in the wild. It was their own “field trip."

Shedd Aquarium in Chicago allowed its penguins to waddle around and meet other animals in order to stay entertained during the centre's closure.

“Some of the penguins went on a field trip to meet other animals at Shedd. Wellington seemed most interested in the fishes in Amazon Rising!" the post said.

The video, posted on Sunday, shows a penguin named Wellington taking a look at Amazon fish species.

“Without guests in the building, our animal caretakers are planning even more creative activities for the animals," the aquarium said.

People are loving it.

We're happy to see they're enjoying the little tour, which didn't stop there.

The next morning two more penguins, Edward and Annie, got a chance to venture around the aquarium.


Shedd Aquarium stated on Friday that it is temporarily closing until March 29 due to an “abundance of caution" following the COVID-19 outbreak.
