Photo 22 Apr 22 notes Hundreds of walruses have found themselves a new home on an iceberg 20 miles off shore. The giant marine mammals pile onto the ice and huddle together as they relax on their island. They are taking a break from hunting in the Chukchi Sea, 20 miles off the coast of Alaska, and the moving ice even helps them find their meals.Picture: Solent/Steven Kazlowski/SeaPics (via Pictures of the day: 12 April 2013 - Telegraph)
