Walrus Fitness Fanatic

As I was trudging into work this morning, half-asleep as usual, I was greeted by the bizarre sight on the large tv in reception of a walrus working out by doing sit ups with it's keeper. Found the details and clip (judging by the search results on Google virtually every TV station in the U.K ran it !) later - it's a walrus called Seahook at San Diego Zoo (who are running a keep-fit drive for their animals - well done guys !) :

The full clip is here (hope this works) :

The scenes with Seahook are absolutely hilarious, and the rest of the animals in the clip are cute as anything (manatees are always cute !).

Blog - "All About Pets" By Justin

Silvia found this blog for me - it has some lovely personal pet stories. My favourite has to be "One Duck's Story", a lovely and heartwarming story about an adopted duckling being brought up by some very kind people (with lots of cute photos ! ) :

Check out the story, and the rest of "All About Pets" here :
