The Walrus is a large blubbery marine mammal, with long tusks which can measure over 3 feet long. An adult male can weigh in excess of 4400 pounds and measure over 11 foot long. They also have a thick bushy mass of whiskers. These whiskers are called vibrissae and help them feel for prey in murky waters. Their habitats must be shallow as they feed along the sea floor and cannot dive to exceptional depths. They feed on a wide variety of sea creatures mostly found along the seafloor. They cannot dive very deep but they can hold their breath for half an hour while searching for food. Their favourite food includes clams and other mollusks. They use powerful suction to pull the clams from their shells. They also feed on shrimp, crabs and soft corals. Walruses can be found in Arctic and subarctic waters of the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans and the Laptev Sea.
