Notes and Information

Also known as Varya (Варя), this walrus was said to be 4 years old in a source dated to 2014.

Varya was housed at the Krasnodar Circus in at least one documented instance over the winter season when the Dolphinarium was closed. At this time I have no information regarding whether or not she made this transfer over multiple years or just in this single instance.

The last reliably dated mention and sighting I have of this walrus were from a park guest's visit on August 26th, 2014, uploaded to a review site in September of the following year.
