Is it just me or do those dolphins look extra happy to see a sloth?
Texas State Aquarium
The [ Texas State Aquarium] is currently closed to the public due to [/health/social-distancing-how-to-do-it-who-should-do-it-and-for-how-long/ social distancing] requirements, but that hasn't stopped the animals inside from hanging out with new friends.
Texas State Aquarium staff have apparently been giving some animals a chance to explore parts of the aquarium and meet other creatures in different habitats. When a celebrity sloth named Chico got to meet some new dolphin buddies, the dolphins appeared to love the playdate.
The 3-year-old sloth took a break from his usual enclosure when the [ staff took him on a tour] around the Gulf of Mexico exhibit, which included meeting ducks, seahorses and jellyfish. Because roaming around on his own would have been difficult, staff carried him around hanging by a large branch.
