Today, SeaWorld gave guests their first opportunity to meet the park's two new walrus calves, Ginger and Aku, at the Wild Arctic habitat.

Last year in November, the pair met after Aku was rescued from a gold mining dredge off the coast of Alaska, says SeaWorld. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services thought it best to transport the young calf to Orlando because Ginger's young age could serve as a good companion to Aku.

Ginger was the first-ever walrus to be born in captivity last June, Orlando Weekly reported.

These two calves are accompanied by two adult walruses named Garfield and Kaboodle, who is Ginger's mom.
