Several of Chicago's Shedd Aquarium penguins got to meet some beluga whales on their latest field trip adventure around the facility.

"While the aquarium is closed to the public, caretakers are onsite 24/7 taking care of the animals, including the penguins," the Shedd Aquarium said. "Both species of penguins are expected to nest for the next few months, which may also result in new chicks joining the colony as early as May."

The Shedd Aquarium penguins have kept busy during the stay-at-home order in Illinois, taking a tour of the aquarium's exhibits as well as getting a visit from a porcupine.
