The first baby walrus born in Germany was proudly presented today at Hamburg’s Hagenbeck Zoo.

The zoo called the pup a ‘sensation’ and a ‘premiere in the animal park’s 100-year-old history’, as births of walruses are rare worldwide.

For the Hamburg zoo, it’s the first birth of a walrus calf ever.

In order to avoid any risk to the pup and its mum they were kept in the relative calm and quiet of the zoo’s interior enclosure.

As for the name of the walrus baby, it will be decided by the visitors through a competition starting next week.
