Although walruses look ugly, they have great skills, especially their long teeth. Moreover, long teeth are of great use! You know what? Moreover, walrus is also an excellent “vocalist” and “excellent musical instrument player”. Let’s get to know the characteristics of this marine “vocalist” with big teeth~
Walruses belong to the family walrusidae of the order pteropods and have no brothers or sisters. Walruses are much smaller than elephants, but they are the largest among finnopods. Walruses mainly live in Arctic waters. Their bodies are heavy and long, and their skin is rough and wrinkled; Their limbs have degenerated into fins and their noses are short; Their ears have no earshells and look ugly.
Tusks are walruses’ defensive weapons. Walrus lives in high latitudes, and Orcas and polar bears are its natural enemies. Once encountered, walruses will show their weapons – tusks. Of course, walruses will not fight with these powerful characters unless they have to. At this time, walruses’ long teeth become ice picks, which can help them avoid natural enemies on the ice.
