Notes and Information

This individual was one of nine walruses rescued in Alaska in 1982 -- it was transferred to SeaWorld San Diego that August alongside another individual, although beyond this I have no further information.

The "first four" of these walruses were held temporarily at the Anchorage Zoo -- It is known that ET and Denali were housed at the facility, but the identities of the other two are unconfirmed.
