Around the world, the coronavirus has caused drastic changes in people's lives, especially in cities where many people live. Many countries are trying to decrease the spread of the virus by closing public centers — in this case they closed an aquarium.

This happened in Chicago, Illinois, the Shedd Aquarium had to close its doors to visitors by orders of the authorities. After the aquarium was completely closed, some penguins went for a walk to visit other aquatic animals.

In the video that was published by the official account of Shedd Aquarium, we can see Wellington — a penguin that took a walk to see some fish from the Amazon.

"Penguins in the Amazon? Some penguins went for a walk to meet other animals. Wellington seems more interested in the fish in the Amazon Rising. Disk tetra also seems interested in this unusual visitor," they said in the post.

The goal of allowing animals to freely walk inside the aquarium is to keep them active. According to CNN, these activities will be done to try food they can, and for them to learn to behave in a more natural way within the aquarium environment.

Many of those who watched the video on Twitter said Wellington smiled at them, something that was missing. The Shedd Aquarium will be closed until March 29, as will other attractions in the city.
