‘Singing’ Walrus Is Fascinating, Freaky

E.T. Walrus

While the walrus is best known for its unique, hangdog look, the aquatic mammal can also make quite the array of interesting sounds.

E.T., a 30-year-old walrus at the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium in Tacoma, WA, displays a wide range of vocal talents in the video below. Anybody using headphones might want to turn down the volume a bit, as the big fellow can make some big noise.

As you can hear, E.T. can growl, bellow and roar, among other rather aggressive vocalizations. And the well-trained beast can do so on demand.

We’re not sure if E.T.’s routine makes us want to run away in fear or build an aquarium in our basement so we can have one too. What do you think?

One thing is for sure. The similarities between E.T.’s singing and the baffling sounds of Skrillex are pretty uncanny.
