Walrus Drinks Straight From Hose, Sings at Tacoma Zoo

A huge walrus whistled and grunted with happiness as he lounged and chugged water straight from a hose at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium in Tacoma, Washington, on Tuesday, February 20.

Video of the marine mammal enjoying time with a staff member was posted by the zoo on X. “Walrus spa day!” they wrote in the caption.
