Orphaned Walrus Plays in Kiddie Pool

At 275 pounds, he's a little oversized for a toddler. But this young walrus loves to flop around in his pool, just like any other kid.

The calf, whom we told you about after he was rescued from Barrow, Alaska, became the first patient in the Alaska SeaLife Center’s I.Sea.U critical care unit. The center now reports that he’s in stable condition, is happy to take a bottle and is interacting well with his caregivers.

You can see how well he’s adjusting by watching his adorable antics in the video below.

To help the center which relies on donations, consider contributing here.
