Dances with Walruses

I took my family to the Indianapolis Zoo on a rainy Sunday. I've decided I like going on rainy days, because we had the entire place to ourselves.

While we were there, we visited the walrus exhibit, and my wife, Toni, had a great time playing with one of the walruses there. She would run from one end of the tank to the other, and he would follow her. Then she would run back, and he'd go with her. They did that for at least 20 minutes, and he would get cranky when she stopped.

I took a few photos and a couple videos, which you can see here.

One thing I missed, which I wish I would have recorded, was the walrus getting excited or agitated when Toni started to leave. He would bob his head up and down in the water, splashing it, asking her to come back. She had a great time, and I'm sure we'll be back the next time it rains.
