WALLY the walrus shows off his gnarled side after hopping on a speedboat for a nap.
The arctic mammal, on a maritime visit to Wales, Cornwall and the French and Spanish coasts, has now appeared in County Waterford, Ireland.
The finfish eater boarded the motorboat and lay down for a nap in the sun.
Adam Collins of the Clonakilty Distillery said: âIt was really a surprise to see the walrus in the boat, not to mention the coasts of Clonakilty.
âWe’re used to seeing minke and humpback whales around here, but never a walrus.
âFortunately, no damage was caused. We think he came all this way just to try a minke gin and tonic.
Walruses typically live in the seas around the Arctic Circle and feed on clams, crabs and shrimp.
And now a rescue organization is calling for help to find him a safe floating platform.
Seal Rescue Ireland, which works to save seals, wrote on Twitter yesterday (Tuesday): âWalrusWatch and EMERGENCY Appeal: Guarded, protected from disruption and avoided property damage.
