A moving video of rockhopper penguins exploring an empty aquarium in the United States delighted users online. The coronavirus epidemic in the United States has led to the closure of several stores and businesses. Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium may have closed temporarily, but has decided to post some good news on Twitter for anyone looking for it.
The published video showed footage of two penguins walking in the empty aquarium.
The caption read: “This morning, Edward and Annie explored the Shedd roundabout.
“They are a tied pair of Rockhopper penguins, which means they are together for the nest season.
“Spring is the nesting season for penguins in Shedd, and this year is no different!”

He continued: “Penguins like Edward and Annie will start building their nests next week.
“In the meantime, we will be sharing many animal updates (and yes, Wellington will be back!)
“While this may be a strange time for us, these days it seems normal for animals to Shedd.
“Our caregivers constantly provide new experiences so that animals can explore and express their natural behaviors.”
Twitter user Suki replied to the posted video: “I don’t think I should be so thrilled to watch penguins roaming freely, but here I am.”
Libby added: “Please, how many videos can you post for us!”
Kristin Whiston also praised the clip: “OMG! We love the Shedd aquarium and the penguins! My daughter is obsessed with them and turtles! More penguins and turtles! “
Aural also said: “Thanks! Slightly smiling face, he needed a nice fix for the penguins after a hard day! “
Joe Lozario tweeted: “Thanks for doing it, really moving to see.”
