Walrus (Odobenus Rosmarus), Svalbard

Year: 2010
From collection: Arctic Biodiversity
Taken by: Peter Prokosch
The walrus is a benthic (bottom) feeder - their diet consists of molluscs such as mussels, which they find on the seabed. Understandably, they prefer habitats with access to shallow feeding grounds and are often found near the coast or near large areas of drift ice.
