WATCH: Adorable baby walrus born at SeaWorld Orlando

- SeaWorld Orlando has welcomed a tiny, whiskered, baby walrus into the park.

The 14-year-old mother walrus, Kaboodle, gave birth to the baby on June 3, and the pair have been bonding ever since, even snuggling when they sleep, the park said.

The park's veterinary team says the new arrival has already brought great joy to all of them, especially seeing mom and calf vocalizing with each other.

This is the first baby walrus born at SeaWorld Orlando.

Though walrus populations are not threatened, they are facing habitat challenges with warming temperatures and a thinning ice pack, the park says. The park's walruses help to educate the public about their habitat loss.

Kaboodle and her calf are not yet on display as they remain under 24 hour care.
