      Você já aprendeu a difference between seals and sea lions. But existe um outro marine mammal que é very similar: o walrus.

      O walrus tem long and white theeth, ou ‘tusks’. As tusks crescem ao longo de toda a vida desse animal e podem medir até one meter!

      The tusks are very important because estes esses animals passam boa parte to tempo swimming under the ice. But, quando precisam respirar, eles usam as tusks para abrir holes no ice.

       Na hora de sair da water, os walruses usam as tusks para pull o próprio body. E os males ainda as usam para proteger seu territory e suas females.
