A walrus spotted on an Irish beach yesterday (March 14) may have floated there from the Arctic Circle after falling asleep on an iceberg.
A 5-year-old girl walking with her father spotted the blubbery newcomer.
The young girl, named Muireann, pointed out the walrus to her dad, Alan Houlihan, as they walked on Valentia Island in
County Kerry. "I thought it was a seal at first, and then we saw the tusks,"
Houlihan said, according to IrishCentral.
"He kind of jumped up on the rocks. He was massive. He was about the size of a bull or a cow, pretty similar in size; he's big, big."
