Notes and Information

This pup was captured alongside two others at three months old (most likely during or near October), and were sent directly from the capture site en route to Izu-Mito.

This walrus was still alive as of April, 1998 -- There is a significant possibility that this individual may be Mohku, although I have no confirmation at this time.
