Walrus Calf
In this photo taken July 24, 2012 and provided by the Alaska SeaLife Center, a Pacific walrus male calf is under care at the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward, Alaska after it was stranded near Barrow. The calf is estimated to be 4- to 6-weeks old. Officials report a large group of walrus floated on sea ice past Barrow July 17, and believe this calf became separated from them. Barrow fishermen saw the calf in a lagoon. (AP Photo/Alaska SeaLife Center)
