Dutch Walrus class submarine

Just thought I’d share these pictures of an actual walrus having a nap on top of a Dutch Walrus class submarine.


Brilliant! Where was the photo taken?

The picture was taken at the Royal Netherlands Navy base in Den Helder. This Walrus (the animal, not the sub) has been swimming up and down the Dutch coast for a number of days now. Normally these creatures don’t come this far south.

Exactly. That’s why I was wondering. Thanks for sharing!

Certainly not a typical scene. I am surprised the aquatic mammal is so far South but then again, too much of a Photo OP to pass up!

That’s a wonderful series, Jay! My favorite shot is that last one where it looks like the walrus is kissing his big Walrus cousin!

The name of the vessel is Zms Dolfijn. So you got a walrus on a dolphin. What would come of that!
