With aquarium closed to humans, penguins explore and visit other animals

Shedd Aquarium Penguins

The penguins at Shedd Aquarium in Chicago are seeing what life is like on the other side of the glass as the aquarium has been closed off to humans.

The building is closed to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, so a group of rockhopper penguins were allowed to leave their habitat and explore the rest of the aquarium.

The twitter account for Shedd Aquarium shows Edward and Annie exploring the building.

Another penguin, Wellington, was most excited by other fish as a video shows him walking with his flippers out.

Shedd Aquarium said they intend to keep sharing these posts to their twitter followers.
