The aquarium announced Friday that Samka has died.

Samka, the 13-year-old walrus that made headlines for giving birth to one of two walrus calves in captivity, has died.

The exact cause of Samka's death has yet to be determined.

She had been showing signs of concern for a few days, including a lack of appetite. A team of veterinarians was observing and treating her, but Samka died overnight.

Balzak, who is male, was born days after his half sister Lakina. The two are believed to be the first full-term baby walruses to be born in captivity in Canada.

They made their debut at the aquarium on Wednesday.

Arnaliaq is Lakina's mother. Boris fathered both calves.
