Wellington The Penguin Meets Beluga Whales

If you guys aren't following @shedd_aquarium on Twitter, you're definitely missing out on some under the sea magic! 

The staff are currently letting the penguins roam the empty aquarium and documenting their adventures!

And on March 31st, Wellington the Penguin meet beluga whales -- for the very first time! And the belugas are northern hemisphere animals, so they likely have never seen a penguin either!

Which explains the second belugas curiosity as it presses its head against the glass for a better look!

Penguins Roam Freely In The Chicago's Aquarium After It Was Closed Amid The Coronavirus Outbreak

The Shedd Aquarium in Chicago has been locked down like many other places in the US amid the COVID-19 outbreak. But the managers of the place just provided us with the much needed bright spot we all need these days - the cutest videos of their penguins roaming around the entire aquarium and meeting their animal roommates. And that's what we call a great opportunity for a penguin party!  

The aquarium tweeted that without guests in the building, their animal caretakers are planning even more creative activities for the penguins and other animals. So stay tuned!
