Texas State Aquarium has been closed to visitors due to the coronavirus pandemic, which has allowed a popular sloth named Chico to make some new dolphin friends in the form of Liko and Schooner.

An aquarium spokesperson said: ''As some of our most popular animals, it seemed an obvious choice for our sloths and dolphins to get a chance to see each other while we were temporarily closed.''

A social media post revealed that the two dolphins were fascinated by the sloth.

The Facebook post read: ''Liko and Schooner were very curious, and Liko was even inspired to attempt an upside-down sloth impression.''

The sloth got to meet a number of animals during his tour, including ducks, seahorses and jellyfish. As roaming around on his own would have been difficult, staff carried Chico around using a large branch.
