Two Pacific walrus calves are feeling great after their periless journey.
Pakak and Mitik were both rescued near Barrow, Alaska and have been steadily improving in condition.
The bigger of the two babes, Pakak, weighs 300 pounds and is a bit more lively than Mitik, who is at a low 175 pounds.
Walruses are very social animals so the two rescues are being housed together at the Alaska Sea Life Center to play and communicate with each other.
And these two LOVE to play!

This little (well, not little but small for a walrus) baby walrus was found abandoned, only four to six weeks old.
Walrus' are very touchy-feely, social creatures, so he needed the love and care of rescuers from the Alaska SeaLife Center.
They played with him, fed him milk from a huge bottle and even laid back against a wall as he waddled over to cuddle up to them.
