Eyewitnesses say a marine mammal was found in the rocks on Valentia Island in Kerry. Irish Freelance.
“The water penetrated the rocks and gave us a small show,” Alan Houlihan told the newspaper.
“I thought it was a sign first, and then we saw the horns,” Holyhan said, when he saw Walrus with his 5-year-old daughter.
Marine biologist Kevin Flannery, a local aquarium official, told police on Sunday that the find was “confirmed to be the first sighting of a walrus.”
“This is amazing… This is a special moment for me.”
Flannery speculates that a walrus may have inadvertently traveled on an iceberg from the North Pole.
“He is from the North Pole,” Flannery told the Associated Press. “I would say I slept in an avalanche and retreated and then it happened in the middle of the Atlantic or somewhere else under Greenland.”
