Both the walrus and the elephant seal belong in the Pin- nipedia Order, meaning the finny-footed animals.

The walrus has the family Odobenidae all to himself. The sea elephant belongs with the true seals, also called the earless or hair seals, in the family Phocidae. These fellows have coats of short hair and no visible outer ears. Their back flippers are useless on land and they are always more at home in the water. The sea elephant is at home on and off the ice floes of the bleak arctic and antarctic. In the past, his more numerous family enjoyed life around many milder shores and islands. The few remaining walruses of the world live ony in the icy arctic regions. A bull sea elephant may measure 18 feet from his dangling nose to the tip of his back finny feet, and he may weigh more than 2V 2 tons. Of course he needs a lot of blubbery fat to keep him warm in his polar oceans, The fat is piled around his body in layers and h« looks somewhat like a pile of over-sized auto inner tubes. His outstanding feature is a dangling nose, somewhat like an elephant trunk. He uses it to scare enemies away from his herd of 20 or so wives and their calves. When suspicious, he fills his hollow trunk with air and trumpets a raging roar that can be heard far and wide. A mother elephant seal is about 10 feet long. A bull walrus is about 10 feet long and weighs 1V« tons, a ton less than his giant cousin. His wide pug face bristles with short whiskers and he has no trunk. Instead, he has a splendid pair of ivory tusks, maybe 2 feet long. His many wives are merely 8 feet long and weigh no more than 1 ton apiece — but they too have walrus tusks. A mother bears one calf in May. He is about 4 feet long, clothed in soft gray woolly hair and he feeds on mother's milk for two years. Mrs. Elephant Seal bears one or two calves in early summer. They are only 2V 2 feet long and ready to give up mother's milk after six weeks, though they stay close to home until their first birthday. Both the walrus and the elephant seal have been slaugh- tered by the hunter. In 1911, conservationists set about saving the elephant seal from extinction. They posted a garrison on Guadalupe Island off Baja California, where a tew of the giants had survived, and shot at hunters who tried to harm them. The walrus is still hunted by Eskimos but only a few of the tusky fellows remain and they are hard to find. They shy away from the shores and stay out to sea around floating chunks of ice.
