You may have seen that viral video of penguins walking freely inside Chicago’s empty Shedd Aquarium last week. It was cute, don’t get us wrong, but here in Milwaukee, we’ve got to root for the home team.
So, enjoy a video featuring our hometown penguins enjoying a bubble party at the Milwaukee County Zoo below. For real.
Zookeeper Katie Coutant captured the behind-the-scenes moment and sent it to us.
In addition to the video and photos, she also shared an update on how the animals are adapting to not having human visitors at the zoo. She assures us that the animals are still getting top-notch care, and says everyone at the zoo is looking forward to reopening.
