A giant walrus has landed on the rocks in Southeastern Ireland. It’s believed to be only a handful of times that the Atlantic Walrus has been spotted on the Emerald Isle.

A man and his five-year-old daughter were walking along the shore when they saw the exhausted mammal on the rocky shore.

It’s believed that the walrus is rather young as its tusks are only about a foot long.

One marine biologist believes that the walrus could have fallen asleep on an iceberg before being carried across the Atlantic Ocean to Ireland.

There’s been just a few walrus sightings reported in Ireland over the years. Once in 1987, another sighting in 1999 and as far back as 1930.

Imagine taking a nap and waking up to find that you've floated away and landed on another continent! How long was he sleeping?
