Notes and Information

Beyond its identifier, OrZH013, I have thus far been unable to find any information regarding this individual.

This walrus's registration number comes between that of Nikolai's (born in 1995) and Rossita's (arrived in 2002) -- it should additionally be noted that one publication referencing Harderwijk's walruses over a study period ending in 1999 excluded this individual, making it most likely that this individual arrived in Harderwijk at some point between 1999 and 2002.

It is unknown whether this individual was wild-caught or captive-born.
