E.T. is back where zoo visitors can see him.
The 32-year-old, 3,350-pound walrus is one of the most popular critters at the Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium.
Hit by a gastrointestinal infection, E.T. stopped eating May 12.
But the zoo says he regained his appetite late last week, and he's now back to swimming at the exhibit he shares with females Joan and Basilla.
Veterinarians and zookeepers continue to monitor him closely, the zoo said.
