Face to face with a Walrus
Face to face with a Walrus

I like Walruses when they are in the water. On land they’re just a big, smelly bag of potatoes that don’t do a thing, but in the water they’re interesting animals. They scrub themselves, they make bubbles in the water and can be really curious at times. When you stand in the water and kick around some stones, some individuals come closer to have a look at the source of that sound. This way you can sometimes get within a few meters of these animals, or better, they get within a few meters of me… For our guests of course also a really nice moment, as they can also enjoy these strange creatures of the sea. At moments like this you really wonder who is watching who…
