Walrus spotted in Wales, days after one seen off Ireland – BBC News

walrus “I did a double take,” Cleopatra said. “You go around the coast path and go, ‘Woah.’ It’s not what you expect. It would be like seeing a penguin in your lounge.”

Cleopatra watched the walrus from about 40m (130ft) away and believed it was a young animal as its tusks were “about three inches long”.

“There is a tale going around that it fell asleep on an iceberg and ended up drifting across and woke up in Ireland,” said Cleopatra.

“And then ended up in Wales on the way home.”

Cleopatra said the animal should be named Wyn as it was seen in Wales, though the “obvious” name for the walrus was Wally.

“Wally by name, Wally by nature,” she said.
