Brooklyn's biggest baby turns one today.

And he already has whiskers and two-inch tusks.

The big, little guy is Akituusaq the walrus, who was born at the New York Aquarium a year ago today.

Such births in captivity are very rare.

The baby walrus weighed 115 pounds when he was born and is much bigger today.

The Aquarium will be celebrating in walrus style, with a custom made ice cake.
