Walrus tusks reach an average length of about 14 inches, though they can reach a whopping 39 inches in males. Both the male and female walruses have tusks, though the males’ tusks tend to be longer and thicker.
Male tusks typically weigh 1.0 – 1.4 kg (2 to 3 lbs), are 40 cm (16”) in length, and have base cross sections of 3 by 6 cm (1.25 by 2.5”). Compared to males, female tusks are thinner and taper less from the base to the tip. Female tusk length is usually similar to male tusks, but female bases are more round than oval [4 cm (1.5”) diameter], and they typically weigh 0.5 to 1.0 kg (1 to 2 lbs.).
