Penguins were let loose inside a mall in Canada and it was all caught on video
In a scene straight out of Happy Feet, penguins at a mall in Canada were given the chance to explore the empty shopping centre — and they clearly had the best day ever.
Now that the humans are gone, animals at the West Edmonton Mall are enjoying some shopping time to themselves 🐧- 📹 @Official_WEM #Canada #Edmonton #YEG #CoronavirusCanada #COVIDCanada pic.twitter.com/VAPDTkPKj7— Freshdaily (@freshdaily) May 1, 2020
Several other animals make an appearance in the video as well, including a very chilled lizard hanging out on the Fantasyland concierge desk.
Although the penguins aren't identified, they're likely brothers Dayo and Skadu — a pair of celebrity penguins that were once flown all the way to Ontario to make an appearance in a Netflix show.
The penguins filmed there for eight days, and they even had a backyard-sized pool built for them.
And it's not just West Edmonton Mall that's letting their penguins roam free; in March, the Vancouver Aquarium also gave their penguins the opportunity to explore.
And south of the border, a Chicago aquarium similarly let a pair of rockhopper penguins roam free around the empty space on a romantic date night.
The adventure continues! 🐧🐧— Shedd Aquarium (@shedd_aquarium) March 16, 2020
This morning, Edward and Annie explored Shedd’s rotunda. They are a bonded pair of rockhopper penguins, which means they are together for nesting season. Springtime is nesting season for penguins at Shedd, and this year is no different! (1/3) 👇 pic.twitter.com/VdxN3oQAfe
With more animals being spotted across Canadian cities as well, you just never know where you're going to run into some wildlife these days.
