You’ll love this video of a couple of penguins openly exploring Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium, closed due to COVID-19.

With Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium closed due to visitors due to the Covid-19 outbreak, a couple of penguins were given the opportunity to look around areas in the aquarium not usually visited by its penguins. On Sunday and Monday (March 15 and 16, 2020), the aquarium tweeted videos showing the penguins’ tour. A 30-year-old rockhopper penguin named Wellington seemed especially intrigued by an exhibit of Amazonian fish.
