Notes and Information

The images found here have all been gathered either from this facility's official resources or news articles.

This pup and its sibling were one of only three known instances of twins in captive walruses.

One source states that these pups were born at SeaWorld San Diego; it is all but certain that they were actually delivered at San Antonio, and therefore I make the presumption here that the alternate information was simply the result of an error.
