Wonderful Walrus Facts! (World Wildlife UK)
- Both male and female walruses have tusks. Walruses use their tusks to haul themselves out of the water and onto the sea ice. Their tusks are also used for keeping breathing holes open in the ice, fighting with other walruses, and for defence against predators.
- They can live to around 40 years old. And it shows. Most of them carry a vast map scars on their skin – wounds inflicted in disputes with fellow walrus during the breeding season.
- The greatest threat to walruses is climate change. Melting sea ice means more Pacific walruses are resting on land, further from their feeding grounds. These ever growing gatherings can be deadly, especially for young calves. And as the Arctic opens up to more shipping, tourism, industry and noise, the Atlantic walruses are at greater threat of disturbance, and therefore stampedes.
