Wellington Meets the Sea Otters

Wellington meets the sea otters! 🦦🐧 Wellington the rockhopper continued his field trip around the aquarium by visiting the sea otter habitat. At 32 years old, Wellington is no spring chicken (and not just because he’s a penguin!) He is more than double the life expectancy of a rockhopper! Thanks to laser therapy and cataract surgeries, he’s “still got it” and can enjoy going on enriching adventures. Where's Wellington going next? Stay tuned to find out!

Well if penguins are up and about can the dinosaur be much behind. So Field Museum’s Sue is clearly having a field day on social media today.

SUE goes for a stroll

Once SUE the T. rex heard our friends at Shedd Aquarium let their penguins out to explore, we really didn't have a choice. First stop: Hall of Birds. 🐧Did you know birds are dinosaurs? It's true! Our small feathered friends of today are avian dinosaurs, descended from a group of two-legged dinosaurs known as theropods. This carnivorous group included intimidating types like Tyrannosaurus rex and velociraptors. 🦖 As such, SUE is demanding we change the maps to read: Hall of Tiny Theropods. Sometimes you just can't win with an apex predator. 🤷‍♀️
