VIDEO: Penguins roam free in Chicago aquarium to visit other animals
The penguins at the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago took a break from being looked at to doing the looking instead, on Sunday.
While the building has been closed to visitors due to the COVID-19 outbreak, a group of rockhopper penguins were allowed to leave their habitat and explore the rest of the aquarium.
The aquarium tweeted out some videos of the penguins taking in all of their environment.

This morning, Edward and Annie explored Shedd’s rotunda. They are a bonded pair of rockhopper penguins, which means they are together for nesting season. Springtime is nesting season for penguins at Shedd, and this year is no different! (1/3) ?? pic.twitter.com/VdxN3oQAfe
The videos have all been viewed millions of times on social media.
The aquarium, which is planning to be closed until March 29, is just one of dozens of attractions that have closed across the country to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus.
