Walruses favorite food is mollusks and clams. They also feed on worms, crustaceans, sea cucumbers, some fish and cod. If their food supply is low they will eat younger seals.
Walruses have a large selection of foods to choose from given their large stature. Some favorite foods for the walrus include clams, snails, crabs, urchins, worms and shrimp.
