Walrus

Walrus
These walrus are agile in the water but need to rest in large groups on the beaches around Spitsbergen.  They expend a great deal of effort hauling themselves out of the water.  With their enormous tusks, it seems surprising that accidents do not happen as the nuzzle closely together.   There is much grunting and snorting and other bodily noises.
