First Baby Walrus Born At Sea World Orlando
Sea World has welcomed its first baby walrus.
The baby walrus was born June 3rd, and it’s the first calf for mom Kaboodle.
Sea World veterinary teams are keeping an eye on mother and baby, who are bonding and snuggling as they sleep.
They are not currently on display, but Sea World says they will be used to teach guests about the plight of walruses due to climate change and a thinning ice pack.
There are about a quarter of a million walruses in the world.
