The Walrus's scientific name, Odobenus rosmarus, translates to Tooth Walk. This refers to the animal's way of pulling itself out of the water with its massive tusks. The walrus's diet consists mainly of shellfish, but when food is scarce it has been known to dine on crabs or krill. The walrus' "mustache" is composed of thousands of sensative hairs that it uses to search for food. Walrus' are rarely preyed upon because of its volitile temprency. A starving Polar bear will somtimes attack a walrus in hopes of a meal, but is usually unsuccessful. The biggest threat to a walrus is the Orca when it migrates north.
In Zoo Tycoon: Marine Mania, the walrus was one of multiple Pinnipeds included in the game. Others included the California Sea Lion and the Northern Elephant Seal. With exeption of the californian sea lion, the Pacific Walrus is the only pinniped offered in Zoo Tycoon 2: Marine Mania.

Black Rhino Ranger's Description
"Nothing much to explain but this candy statue was either born like that or he was brought to life by Sabrina the Teenage witch".
- Note: No image, something is wrong with this one.
The Pacific Walrus can perform aquatic shows in Zoo Tycoon 2. Its tricks are fairly simple due to its huge body mass, and are elementry compaired to its cousins, the sea lions shows. The walrus' tricks include waving to the crowd and "growling."
Inaccuracies of the Pacific Walrus's behaviours include its gait, which is the undulation notable to the sea lion, its preference to land and its front flipper shape which does not sport the fibula of a real walrus.
