" This walrus is really big and it has white teeth, they are so long that they reach the ground. Its eyes are big and black. "

1940 catalogue description

" The walrus is confined to the Arctic regions only. It is a gentle and inoffensive creature as a rule, but when attacked becomes very fierce and its huge bulk renders it a formidable antagonist. The tusks are used to dig into the mud to procure food which largely consists of shell fish and other small sea animals. "
