Bull Walrus, Svalbard

Bull Walrus, Svalbard
Along with the Polar Bear, Walrus are the most charismatic of the wildlife you'll find in the Arctic. With their massive bulk, huge tusks and sad eyes these guys are at once comical and sometimes, as here, oddly dignified. They eat primarily mussels, which they suck off the sea bed - and they can consume thousands in a day.
