Now Closed To Humans, Penguins Are Free To Explore The Shedd Aquarium

By Chicago Bucket List

A little story to make you pen-grin 😊


Published March 18, 2020

When the Shedd Aquarium shut down this week, the penguins got a chance to break out of their q-aqua-rantine and waddle over to check out the other exhibits.

After spending so much time with their own kind, a few of the penguins wandered around and gave wing waves to the Amazon fishes and dolphins.

Meanwhile, a rockhopper penguin couple traveled to the rotunda where they made friends from all different corners of the ocean. We all have some serious FOMO right now because this is a gathering of 2 we'd like to join.

While life is a little crazy for us humans right now, the aquarium animals are used to being stuck "at home". The Shedd staff is continuing life as normal for those under the sea by providing consistent activities, food, and care. Plus they’re giving us daily uplifting entertainment on Instagram!
