Walruses are large, tusked mammals that live in the Arctic. They use their tusks to break open clams and other sea creatures for food.
They can grow up to 16 feet long, weigh 4 tons, and live up to 50 years old!
There are two types of walruses: The Pacific Walrus lives off the coast of Russia and Alaska while the Atlantic Walrus is found along Canada's eastern coast. Both types have a thick layer of blubber under their skin which helps them stay warm during cold winter months.
Walruses spend most of their time on land but they need to get into the water every few days or so to keep from dehydrating.
