WHAT IS THE WALRUS?


The Walrus lives in the Arctic circle and spends much of its day in open water or near the shore resting on ice floes. If there is no ice it will find rocks on an island or on the shore along other walruses. The Walrus has thick skin and blubber that keeps it warm while it swims ini the arctic weather. Sometimes the blubber on a walrus will be over 6 inches deep to keep the animal from freezing to death. During the breeding season large herds of walruses gather and the bulls fight for the cows and the largest bulls often win.



The winner often mates with many females and the gestation period is 15 months after the mate ends. The season for mating lasts from April to June. The females gives birth to only one calf that is about 50 inches in length. After 2 weeks it learns to swim and after 6 months it eats solid food and no longer relies on its mothers' milk for nutrition.

The Walrus eats clams, cockles, mussels, shrimp, worms, sea cucumbers and octopuses as well as fish. The Inuit have hunted the Walrus for thousands of years and use every part of it in their traditional dress and their food. Today there are only about 250,000 walruses left in the wild and the possibility of extinction is very real.
