Adorable Rescued Walrus (Video)

 

The Alaska SeaLife Center rescued this adorable walrus calf after he was found stranded by two fisherman. Estimated to be about 4-6 weeks old, he already weighs 200 pounds! These social animals spend 2 years with their mothers, so the staff at the center provides companionship to the calf.

Sincere thanks to the fishermen who rescued this baby--others might have left him to die, but you saved him.
How I do envy the "calf companions" who get to spend lots of time with him--though I know absolutely nothing about walruses--babies or adults!
