Although the pandemic has posted many risks and caused much disturbing news, there are other creatures on earth that enjoy the unlikely time.
Wildlife around the globe has been taking advantage of the situation in many ways including animals that live in zoos. Many zookeepers allow animals at the zoo to wander around and even stroll outside, so they could enjoy the city or authentic nature.
Recently, a few adorable dolphins actually befriended a sloth as they lost their minds with excitement!
Dolphins and a sloth decided to become BFFs, and we’re in a complete shock!
We can’t deny that thanks to our absence in the outside world, animals could genuinely enjoy it fully. Since we’re no longer outside, animals feel less threatened and feel free to invade cities. Nevertheless, zoo animals are definitely taking advantage of our hiatus.
This time, one adorable sloth at the Texas State Aquarium had a chance to befriend some friendly dolphins. The zookeepers believed that they could quickly become great friends, and they were entirely right.
The dolphins were ecstatic to meet the sloth!
I very much loved and the caretakers love to take him and many of other animals on cute meetings with other wild animals. The staff believes that since all of these animals live together in nature, it must entertain them to get to know other animal species.
We can definitely say they are happy to get to know each other, and could genuinely become best friends despite their differences, or perhaps because of them.
The dolphins wanted to play with the sloth all day long!
Chico didn’t only meet the sweet dolphins that day but also said hello to a few ducks, many seahorses, a shark, and other beautiful fish.
Out of all of his new friends, Chico seemed most intrigued by the jellyfish. However, his favorite new friends were definitely the dolphins because they shared a real connection.
The cute meeting occurred at the Gulf of Mexico exhibits. It was quite the adventure for delightful Chico.
Apparently, many aquarium caretakers decided to take advantage of our recent quarantine, and release the wild animals out of theirs. Now, that we’re stuck at home, the staff thinks that it’s a fantastic opportunity, and loves to see the sweet animals become such great friends within minutes; they make a connection so quickly that it’s mesmerizing.
When wild animals meet each other, they’re exposed to someone new, and novel stimulations which aid keep their bodies, minds, and souls sharp.
Because the zoos and aquariums are closed anyway, the staff thinks that it’s a great way to enrich the animals’ lives, and give them a little taste of freedom.
The dolphins didn’t want the sloth to go.
The dolphins enjoy meeting new animals as well! Thanks to the caretakers they’ve already met baby gators, an African serval, a red-tailed boa, and many more wild animals. The dolphins demonstrate a lot of curiosity and empathy.
They had so much fun together, they wanted to stay BFFs.
The staff hopes that the unlikely gatherings make us smile too! That’s just what we need to put a smile on our face while we’re facing the unexpected outbreak.
Eventually, the sloth had to go and meet other adorable wild animals and say goodbye to the dolphins.
We hope that the staff will keep enriching the animals’ lives, and posting their gorgeous meetings on social media, so our hearts could keep melting.
Sweet Chico had the time of his life at the aquarium that day. He hopes to come and see his dolphin friends again very soon.
Chico’s entire adventure was recorded on this viral video! It’s a definite must-watch:
