Fun Walrus Facts For Kids

  • There are two sub-species of walrus.  Walruses can be found in the far north of our planet. They live in the Arctic – a vast wilderness of snow, ice, and sea.  The Arctic landscape is so large and varied, that walruses that live there have developed slightly different characteristics, in order to adapt to the particular part they live in – these are known as sub-species.  Atlantic walruses live in coastal areas from Canada to Greenland (in the Atlantic Ocean), while Pacific walruses live in the northern seas above Russia and Alaska (in the Pacific Ocean).
  • Sometimes, walruses will forage in places where there’s no nearby ice or land for them to haul themselves out onto for nap. That’s why they have handy ‘pharyngeal pouches‘ – air sacs on their throats that inflate like pillows!  Once their pouches are filled with up to 50 litres of air, walruses can doze off, snoozing in a vertical position and kept safe from drowning by their portable pillow – genius!
  • Walruses are very sensitive to changes in their environment.  Despite their formidable size, walruses are easily spooked! In walrus herds, any sign of danger can cause stampedes as the animals flee land and head towards the safety of water.
