The penguins exhibit was closed, sadly. But then when we went to the dolphin show, there were two trained penguins walking around. The first penguin did not walk as far as the more trained and older penguin. Go catch the show at the Shedd! You’ll get to see dolphins AND penguins.
The dolphin section was located next to the Deep Ocean Cafe, so if you find a seat by the glass, you might see the dolphins and catch an underwater show. You can go above the pool to see the actual show that the dolphins perform.
The dolphins are peaceful and active. The new 4-month-old dolphin loves to play. This dolphin was dashing around the tank. She also wasn't doing what the older dolphins were trained to do.
According to “Science at the Aquarium” by Kate Jerome, “The Shedd Aquarium has a massive tank for the Beluga whales. The tank can hold more than 11 million liters of saltwater.“
The Belugas are located where the dolphins and penguins are. One interesting fact I learned about belugas is that they are one of the smallest whales within the whale species.
