Walrus noticed for the primary time ever in Eire


A large walrus was noticed on the shore of western Eire on Sunday — the primary confirmed sighting of the tusked creature within the nation, a report mentioned.

The marine mammal was found on the rocks alongside Valentia Island in Kerry, witnesses informed the Irish Unbiased.

“He breached out of the water onto the rocks and gave us a little bit of a present,” Alan Houlihan informed the newspaper.

“I believed it was a seal at first after which we noticed the tusks,” mentioned Houlihan, who was along with his 5-year-old daughter after they noticed the walrus.

Marine biologist Kevin Flannery, the director of an area aquarium, informed the outlet that Sunday’s discovery, “is the primary confirmed sighting of a walrus” in Eire.

“It’s unimaginable … It’s a one-off so far as I’m involved.”

Flannery theorizes that the Walrus inadvertently traveled from the arctic on an iceberg.

“He’s from the Arctic,” Flannery informed the paper. “I’d say what occurred is he fell asleep on an iceberg and drifted off after which he was gone too far, out into the mid-Atlantic or someplace like that down off Greenland presumably.”
