More Walrus Facts

I am going to tell you some facts about walruses. First of all, an ancient bread of walruses called Gomphotria Pugnax were at the shores of what is now California ~six million years ago, also, they had four tusks; two  on the top and two on the bottom.  A walruses scientific name is Obodenus Rosmaus; that means “tooth-walking sea horse”

Where in the US to see Walruses

Have you ever wondered where in the US you can see walruses in captivity?  I have seen then at Sea World in Orlando. But there are a few other zoos and aquariums which have them as well. Actually, there is a bit of a mystery involved here. The AZA (a national zoo association) says 8 zoos have walruses but I can only find info on 7 of them. The ones I know are:

  • Sea World, Orlando, FL
  • Sea World, San Diego, CA
  • Sea World, San Antonio, TX
  • New York Aquarium, New York, NY
  • Indianapolis Zoo, Indianapolis, IN
  • Point Defiance Zoo, Tacoma, WA
  • Six Flags Aquarium, Vallejo, CA
  • ??

And then there is the mystery 8th location; anyone have any info on this? My google searches have turned up nothing . . .
