Animals roam freely around closed aquariums

With stay-at-home orders throughout the nation and nonessential businesses being shut down during the coronavirus pandemic, most aquariums throughout the United States have also been closed. 

But there is one silver lining to this: Zoos and aquariums being closed to human guests means that animals can be visited by other animals, whether they come from inside the zoo or from an animal shelter.

Nationwide, animals are meeting different types of animals — and sometimes it’s for the first time, given their priceless reactions. 

Here are seven images of the cutest cross-animal interactions at zoos and aquariums.
