Penguins go on ‘field trip’ after U.S. aquarium shuts down during coronavirus pandemic

Penguins at a Chicago aquarium are passing the time during the COVID-19 pandemic by visiting their other animal friends.

Typically, the Shedd Aquarium’s penguins are the ones being peered at through the class by visitors and tourists, but since the aquarium got shut down to the public to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus, the black-and-white animals are taking a turn on the other side.

The aquarium took to Twitter with an adorable video of one of its penguins named Wellington.

“Some of the penguins went on a field trip to meet other animals at Shedd,” it wrote on Twitter. “Wellington seemed most interested in the fishes in Amazon Rising!”

Typically, seeing visitors walk by their homes offers a lot of stimulation for the animals. Now, caretakers have to find other ways to keep them stimulated.
