Walrus tusks generally grow to be two feet long in females and four feet long in males.
Thanks hlennon. Great photo!!
A walrus’ tusks are just two of eighteen teeth in their entire mouth, known as their upper canine teeth. Males tend to have longer and straighter tusks, but female walruses have tusks as well. In fact, for male they can grow to be up to 39 inches long, and in females up to 31.5 inches long. They begin to grow during a calf’s first year, and continue to grow for up to 15 years.
