Mitik, a 15 week old orphaned baby walrus, was rescued off the coast of Alaska, and brought to his new home today, at the New York Aquarium in Brooklyn.
Because walruses are social animals, Mitik's rescuers believe the Aquarium is a perfect fit for the 234-pound baby. He'll join two other walruses-- Nuka and Kulu, already in residence.
Check out Chris Jansing's report on Mitik's incredible journey:
