Notes from DaVic Gallery:   Walruses eat all sorts of small aquatic creatures and their food of choice is the clam. To find clams, they dive to shallow sea floors and search with their sensitive whiskers. Once found, the walrus will seal its lips to the clam’s shell and then quickly withdraw its tongue back into its mouth, which creates a vacuum, sucking the clam right out of its shell.
