On land, they’re hulking, belching, flatulent 1 tonne beasts. They have a substantial layer of blubber covered by thick skin (up to 4cm which is amongst the thickest skin in the world – human skin is only around 1.3mm thick) and coarse hair. But most impressive are their long tusks and stiff bristles around their mouths. Walruses certainly make a statement.
