Notes and Information

Khoma's transfer history prior to June 17th, 2021 is unknown to me.

This walrus is a circus performer, and travels to various venues across several different countries -- as such, it is extremely likely that his transfer history as presented here is incomplete.

Khoma was said to be five years old in May of 2021.
