Trivia: During the flashbacks of Howe stranded on the island, in one brief shot we see the carcass of the dead "Mr. Tusk" after he has killed it - the deceased walrus's body wasn't originally planned to be on-camera, and was constructed by the prop and makeup crew in less than an hour using bits of fabric, pieces of filming equipment and any other odds and ends they could find lying about on or near set.

Question: After Wallace was found as a walrus, why couldn't his friends get him to a hospital to surgically make him human again?

Answer: There's no clear answer but after defeating and killing Howe, Wallace seemed resigned to his fate that he was now living as a walrus and may have refused corrective surgery. It wasn't until the end when Ally said that she still loved him that his humanity began to resurface.

I agree with this, and I also think it wouldn't be worth correcting. He would still not look human.
