Meet Freya, the Walrus Who Became Famous in Norway for Sinking Boats 

Meet Freya, the walrus that’s spent its summer sunbathing and sinking boats in Northern Europe yet has captured the hearts of tourists and locals alike. This young female walrus, weighing around 1,300 pounds, has been sighted in Denmark, Germany, and Scotland before hitting Oslo Harbour in Norway for her summer holiday. Norwegians have come to watch this walrus eat, sunbathe, and sleep on boats in the harbor along Norway’s southeastern coastline for days or even weeks at a time.
