On June 12, 2007, an event occurred at the New York Aquarium that had never happened before: A baby walrus was born. The baby was 115 pounds at birth and now, thanks to the care of his mother, Kulu, and the aquarium staff, he's grown to a healthy, whopping 256 pounds.
More than 9,400 of you logged on to cast your vote and the winning name of Brooklyn's baby walrus, with 45 percent of the vote, is ... Akituusaq!
In fact, more than 4,300 people voted for this name, which means "gift given in Return" in Siberian Yupik.
