A walrus is a semi marine mammal of the sub order Pinnipedia which includes seals and sea lions and the family Odobenidae; they are easily distinguishable from sea lions by their long and pointed tusks which may grow as long as 3 ft long.

There are two main species of walruses the Atlantic and the Pacific classified according to their habitat. The male walruses known as bulls weigh significantly more than the females known as cows with the Pacific walrus bull weighing on an average 1600 kg (3500 lbs) and growing to a length of 12 feet while the walrus cow weighs 1000 kg (2200 lbs) and grows to a length of about 8-10 ft.
