“Nature is healing, maybe we are the virus”. This statement has been circulating on social media with real and fake pictures of wildlife animals in unusual places since February. A new video comes from Kansas City Zoo that released three Humbold penguins, Bubbles (5), Maggie (7), and Berkley (8) – to the nearby Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art located in Missouri.


The exotic birds waddle around the place and it is the cutest thing we have seen in a while. According to the museum's executive director, Julián Zugazagoitia, they were more taken with Caravaggio than they were with Monet. The penguins stared at the paintings in the museum-like keen admirers and it is difficult to hold your smile when you picture them as foreign artists deep in thought about the rich history of the paintings.


"Humboldt penguins in human care can live well into their thirties. In the wild, Humboldt penguins are facing habitat loss and suffering from overfishing which depletes their food sources," a Kansas City Zoo spokesperson told Mashable. "Unfortunately, our penguins can’t speak for themselves, but we think they found the experience at the museum very enriching!"


Here are some pictures  and video of their fun adventure:
