Penguins From The Shedd Aquarium Paid A Visit To Soldier Field During The Latest Field Trip

Amid the pandemic, Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium announced its temporary plans to close throughout the rest of the year. But since humans are not allowed to enter inside, it does not mean that penguins cannot have a good time.

In the last few months, the resident penguins at Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium have been very busy. They got an opportunity to visit the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Field Museum, and the Soldier Field, the home of the Chicago Bears. The stadium is now open for a limited number of fans.

Just in time for the football season, the penguins Darwin, Izzy, Tombo, and Charlotte had the chance to feel the wet grass of the Soldier Field. Also, they could see the locker rooms.
