Adorable Penguins Leave Shedd Aquarium to Tour the Field Museum


Izzy and Darwin, the pair of adorable penguins from the Shedd Aquarium, took a tour of the Field Museum on Wednesday:

The Shedd penguins have become social media hits thanks to videos of them waddling freely around the then-closed aquarium. Izzy and Darwin opted for a change of scenery to check out SUE and Máximo the titanosaur before Field reopens to the public.

Shedd conducts these “field trips” to introduce exercise and variety into the penguins’ everyday lives. The adorable pair waddled around the museum’s main floor and up to the SUE exhibit, saying “hi” to their longtime neighbor. 

The Field Museum, which has been closed since March, will release details about reopening soon. Shedd is open now and tickets are available.

By the way, the Shedd is taking donations at this time to support the penguins and other animals.
