Walrus - budsalaskaphotos

Just in from the sea and feeding on claims, this guy returns to Round Island for a rest. He's white beacuse his blood has been shunted to the body core to keep up the core temperature. IF he rests for awhile he'll regain color, however, older walrus are whiter than younger ones even when warmed on the beach.
