Walruses are mammals that are carnivorous in nature; they are semi aquatic and obtain most of their food from the oceans. Their main food is clams which they break open with their teeth and then suck in the interior. Walruses are also known to eat worms, snails, urchins, mussels, crustaceans like lobsters, sea cucumbers and some kinds of fishes.

Walruses use their teeth for gripping food rather than chewing and prefer to swallow their food whole. They can consume large amounts of food as much as 30 kg (66 lbs) at a single feeding; some walruses can eat thousands of clams at a time.

The walrus has a typical hunting and feeding pattern; it can dive to a depth of 300 ft (90 m) and utilizes its whiskers which are highly sensitive while foraging for food on the ocean floor. When it senses the presence of creatures like snails, claims, worms and the like it blows jets of water from its mouth to loosen the adjoining area to access its food. When food is scarce the walrus may even hunt seals as a source of food.
