Walrus That Starred In ‘Jurassic Park’ ‘Lord Of The Rings’ & Other Movies Dies At Six Flags In Vallejo
He was known worldwide for starring in feature films, most notably for his role in “50 First Dates” alongside Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore as “Jocko” the walrus. He was also the voice for several creatures in the “Lord of the Rings” series, the “Hobbit” series, and in “Jurassic Park.”
A highly anticipated birth at Vallejo’s Six Flags Discovery Kingdom had a sad ending Monday evening when a Pacific walrus gave birth to a stillborn calf.
There have been no more than 11 recorded walrus calves born in North American zoological facilities since 1931, according to Michael Muraco, the theme park’s animal care director.
