Notes and Information

Zaya's transfer history prior to June 17th, 2021 is unknown to me.

This walrus is a circus performer, and travels to various venues across several different countries -- as such, it is extremely likely that her transfer history as presented here is incomplete.

Zaya's age as presented here is assumed based on information provided about her herdmate, Khoma, who was said to be five years old in May of 2021.
