This 1,300-pound walrus named Freya has been named after the Norse goddess of love and beauty after capturing hearts in Norway and sinking many small boats.
The walrus is a young female that has been in the spotlight recently as she has been basking in the sun on small boats in the Oslo fjord.
She first was noticed in Norway when she was climbing onto pleasure boats in Kragero, and she’s been doing the same now in Oslo. Usually, these marine mammals live in the northern latitudes of the Arctic, but Freya has decided to spend her summer in Norway. She has also been spotted in the UK, the Netherlands, Denmark, and Sweden.
The animal has been filmed chasing a duck and attacking a swan, but she is most famous for sleeping on boats that struggle to hold her weight. A walrus can sleep up to 20 hours a day.

Norwegian authorities have urged the public to keep their distance and not swim or kayak near Freya.
