Amidst lockdown, the world has come to a standstill and it’s something animals are using for their good. Recently, a couple of penguins, who are a resident at the aquarium, were freed by the aquarium authorities allowing them to droll around the premise and interact with other animals in the aquarium.
The bonded pair of rockhopper penguins, named Edward and Annie were filmed by the aquarium authorities roaming around at what looks like a fun space. The endearing videos of the pengiuns were shared on twitter and are making the netizens go awww.
The video, when shared, garnered a whopping 2.4 million views and then was later followed by another video of the birds. This time, they were inspecting the information desk and wondering where are those faces that used to make all kind of faces looking at them.
Penguins like Edward and Annie will begin to build their nests next week. Join us digitally for nesting coverage! In the meantime, we will be sharing lots of different animal updates (and yes, Wellington will return!) ?? (2/3) pic.twitter.com/eCYKOwdOMz— Shedd Aquarium (@shedd_aquarium) March 16, 2020
“Wellington seemed most interested in the fishes in Amazon Rising! The black-barred silver dollars also seemed interested in their unusual visitor,” the aquarium wrote, sharing a video of Wellington meeting the fish.
The netizens overwhelmed the reply section with adorable responses too. Have a look.

This is the most adorable thing I’ve seen on the internet…ever. I love how they rubberneck like human tourists as they calmly waddle through the aquarium?❤. Clearly this was an important date, as they dressed formally for the occasion. ❤— Marisa W. (@MarisaWard57) March 17, 2020
