Notes and Information

Patouk has alternatively been spelled Patouck or Patuk, depending on the source.

The 2004 studbook lists a male animal born at Marineland (although having Andrea's birth date) as having moved to San Diego in 1982. A second source also states that Andrea (also born at Marineland in 1978) moved to San Diego in 1982; this may indicate that the studbook record was an error and duplicate of Andrea.

In 2018 this animal's studbook entry was altered to have a birth date of June 7th, 1978, and a transfer date of 1987 to SeaWorld San Diego.

Park guest Alex W. has stated regarding Patouk; "I have been visiting SeaWorld San Antonio for over 30 years. When I visited in July 2001, there was an elderly walrus named Patouk (Along with Illiyak and Takena). Patouk died that following winter."
