Shedd Aquarium in Chicago Let Their Penguins Roam the Building
THIS IS ONE OF THE CUTEST THINGS I'VE EVER SEEN.
Shedd Aquarium in Chicago is one of the many establishments across the country that was forced to close its doors because of coronavirus, but the faculty there seem to be making the best of a bad situation! A new article from USA Today says that Shedd let some of their penguins loose to take a tour of the aquarium this week, and yes, there ARE videos.
The first video was posted to the official Shedd Aquarium Twitter account on Sunday. It shows Wellington, a rockhopper penguin, exploring the Amazon Rising exhibit. He loved watching the fish!
And then there's Edward and Annie. The two rockhopper penguins are a bonded pair, which means they will be together for nesting season beginning next week. They took a tour of the rotunda on Monday, and watching them waddle around is so stinking adorable, I can't even stand it!
Shedd Aquarium will be sharing plenty of updates on their penguins in the coming weeks, so follow them on Twitter to keep up with all cuteness! You can do that HERE.
