Mitik, the New York Aquarium’s new 15-week-old walrus, arrives tomorrow after being rescued in Alaska. He is known to be frisky: “If Mit is resting with his head on my lap, sucking my fingers, looking sweetly into my eyes, and [fellow orphan walrus] Pak comes anywhere near us, he pops up, yells at Pak and tries to head-butt him,” Mit’s recent babysitter told the Times. “We say he is small, but scrappy — the perfect New Yorker.”
