2007_09_walrus2.jpgSeems like just yesterday that Brooklyn's baby walrus was getting a name, but now at just over a year old Akituusaq he's gotten his tusks, or rather titanium crowns on his tusks! The Daily News reports that he "was fitted with the caps after his keepers noticed the tips of his tiny tusks were already wearing away." Rather than risk a bacterial infection in his tusks, he received some dental bling. A curator at the New York Aquarium joked about "putting a diamond in one, or having a laser etch his initials in the other." On a more serious tip, however, the Aquarium lost the baby's father, Ayveg, earlier this year, and is likely be extra careful with his offspring.
