This moustached, long tusked sea mammal is most often found near the Arctic circle. The walrus is a pinniped, or fin-footed mammal, and is related to seals and sea lions. On land, whilst some seals are only able to undulate and drag themselves along with their flippers the walrus is able to move – quite quickly – on all fours.
The food of choice for a walrus is clams but they will also eat sea cucumbers, coral, a variety of mollusks, shrimp, crabs, tube worms, tunicates, and other small marine organisms, seals, sea birds, whales and whale carcasses. They are able to dive to a depth of about 80-90 metres, and stay underwater for 30 minutes at a time. Orcas and polar bears are their only natural predators.
