Found in the Arctic Ocean and neighboring habitats, the walrus is the only member of the family Odobenidae in the Order Carnivora. The Latin name for the walrus translates as “tooth-walking sea horse” due to the animal’s famous large tusks. Males are typically larger than females, reaching up to 12 feet long and 4,000 pounds.

Walruses, whose latin name translates as “tooth-walking sea horse”, are found in the Northern Hemisphere along the perimeter of the Arctic Ocean and sub-arctic seas. The Pacific population ranges across the international boundaries of the United States and Russia.
