E.T. is a 31-year-old Pacific walrus at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium in Tacoma, Washington. He weighs over 3,400 lbs and is one of only 17 walruses in U.S. zoos and aquariums.
When E.T. was a baby, he was rescued as an orphan from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska when a crew of oil surveyors noticed him laying alone out on the tundra. He probably would’ve died if he hadn’t been found that day.
Now watch him practice his vocalizations!
