Sea World San Diego animal keeper Greg Streicher stands with Tessa, a female walrus calf Tuesday in San Diego. Tessa was found beached in Barrow earlier this summer and in July was transported to SeaWorld where she is being treated and hand-raised. Until she can eat whole fish and clams, Tessa will be fed simulated walrus milk formula. According to her keepers, the walrus calf, who weighs 230 pounds, is doing well.
