If she didn't keep feeding the walrus those fatty fish, there would be less need for the workout.

I'm not ashamed to admit that I lost it when the sit ups started.

My guess is God spited the already somewhat fucked T. Rex and turned him into a walrus.

Oh man I had such a shitty day today and it might be a walrus' resemblance to the Calming Manatee meme but this really helped. Thanks a lot.

Can't unsee man trapped in walrus costume. Such odd creatures.

Loltamir.

Also, walruses in captivity will grind their tusks away by sucking on any hard edges in their enclosure in an attempt to replicate their foraging behaviour in the wild. Making them work for food treats (e.g. by doing sit ups) is one common way to try and minimise this behaviour.

There being lots of wider societal and conservation benefits that justify keeping walruses in commercial ocean parks, of course.

I'd look about the same if I did those exercises.
