Walrus Facts

The two species of walrus live in the Atlantic ocean and the Pacific ocean. Both male and female walruses have long hard tusks to cut through the thick ice floating in these oceans. They have thick flubber so that they don't get cold while swimming. They also have large flippers, whiskers and small eyes.
