SeaWorld Orlando is party mood and they have more than enough reasons to celebrate. The theme park just became home to 150-pound female Pacific walrus calf on July 3. She was born to Kaboodle and dad Garfield. This is Kaboodle's second calf and the second calf born at SeaWorld Orlando. Both the mommy and baby calf are doing fine under the watchful eyes of the animal care teams. As Kaboodle was not lactating, the calf had not been receiving proper early nutrition.
