After the outbreak of the coronavirus in the U.S., the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago temporarily closed. The animal keepers decided to take advantage of visitor-free aquarium by letting some of the animals explore outside of their normal areas. One penguin, Wellington, got to visit a fish display called “Amazon Rising.” He acted amazed and excited to see fish swimming on the other side of the glass. He got closer for a better look and then kept looking over his shoulder. Videos of penguins exploring the aquarium were posted online to help lift spirits during the coronavirus pandemic.
