While everyone is feeling a bit couped up, these birds have been enjoying empty aquarium hallways. I think we can all see a trend coming… (animals) on an aquarium tour, but will this trend stop at birds?
The first video popped up last week was a Penguins on an aquarium tour. The video starts with Wellington, a rockhopper penguin waddling the halls of the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. He is then joined by a group of Magellanic penguins, too adorable not to click, I was hooked.
Wellington Goes to Wild Reef
Where's Wellington now? ? This little rockhopper took a field trip to Shedd's Wild Reef...and he's not alone! A few Magellanic penguins that call Shedd home joined the penguin party, checking out this massive habitat. Exploring new spaces, while it might seem out of the ordinary for us, is one of the many ways we keep the animals' days enriching and fun!Posted by Shedd Aquarium on Saturday, March 21, 2020
Then came the Texas State Aquarium, Flamingos on an aquarium tour. If you want to top penguins, we’re guessing flamingos must be the logical progression. I took the bait and had to click.
Sadly, we'll be closed to humans throughout March, but we're still offering tours for some of our animals...With the Aquarium mostly empty, our flamingos were able to explore some other areas, including the underwater exhibits of Caribbean Journey!Posted by Texas State Aquarium on Thursday, March 19, 2020
How about an adorable milky eagle owl chick? Hodari recently stopped by the koi pond at the Dallas Zoo.
Remember Hodari, our adorable little milky eagle owl chick? She took a trip to the Children’s Zoo recently to meet the koi fish! We are introducing her to all kinds of sights and sounds right now, so she’ll grow up to be confident and a great ambassador for her species. pic.twitter.com/4QdkVJj69l— Dallas Zoo (@DallasZoo) March 25, 2020
Or an indian runner duck stoping by the penguin habitat at the Maryland Zoo.
We’re captivated by this burgeoning animals on an aquarium tour trend. Which bird will we see next? It is too much to ask for an emu on an aquarium tour? Or will we see this trend evolve pass birds!
These videos provide us entertainment and are irresistibly clickable, but they also become a great marketing video for the aquarium. We’re sure the animals must also love the new adventure.
We’re curious to see more animal aquarium tours, even if it’s just your home aquarium. Use the hashtag #animalaquariumtour and share your pets enjoying the reef aquarium hobby. We will be sharing our favorites next week as this exciting new trend develops.
