Walruses cool off in Harbin
A pair of walruses at Harbin Polarland has recently been entertaining visitors with their amazing tricks and stunts, according to local media reports on July 5.
Every day at 4 pm, the walruses come out to a cheering crowd and begin their routine.
To start their performance, they spray water onto trainers and visitors. Sometimes spectators return the favor by spraying water back.
When presented with an ice drink, they quaff and “applause” as a gesture to request a refill.
The walruses also perform with seals, together demonstrating their talent for water sports, such as heading a ball and jumping through a hoop. They can also leap in the air and perform twist dives.
Harbin Polarland has rolled out a program where it invites families with children between the ages of 5 and 12 to interact with the polar animals as well as to learn more about the polar region.
