Oceanografic's initial herd of five walruses, including this individual, were all estimated to be 6 months old upon arrival to the park.

I assume the walruses arrived in early December; sources say they arrived a month prior to December 27th, and on the week of December 12th.

On January 17th, 2013 information was published that Yuri had "recently" died.
