Christmas Comes Early for Animals at Queensland Aquarium

Christmas came early for seals and penguins at SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast Aquarium in Queensland, Australia, as snowmen appeared in their enclosures, footage released on December 15 shows.

Video released by the aquarium shows a seemingly intrigued penguin and a pair of curious seals inspecting the new additions.

Staff said the festive fun is a form of enrichment for the animals.

“It is important to provide various enrichment activities for the seals and penguins in order to encourage natural behaviors as well as physical and mental stimulation,” a zoo representative said. Credit: SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast Aquarium via Storyful
