Walrus are mammals in Additional Creatures.

Synopsis

Wild -

A familiar face to many, the Walrus makes its home on the cold coastal waters of the island’s northern region. There’s little difference between the species back home and Odobenus gigas, aside from….well, size. It’s the largest pinniped I’ve ever seen!

Odobenus gigas is your typical walrus in all regards, aside from size. It’s fairly lethargic, humorous, lazy, and a bit temperamental at times. They prefer to scorer the coastal waters of the north, as opposed to Walrus back home, which go out into very deep waters to forage. I assume this is due to the plethora of deep-water predators which will actively hunt these large, blubbery mammals.

Domesticated - Despite their large size, Walrus are extremely agile underwater, and many survivors value them for their utility. Not only are their rubbery hides keeping riders warm, but it also helps resist shocks. The Walrus’s large tusks are both a formidable weapon and a valuable tool for harvesting pearls from the clams around the island. Coupled with its surprising speed, a Walrus is one of the best water harvesters on the island; able to harvest pearls, defend itself, or escape from enemies quickly….so long as it can surface for oxygen.

That, and many people also enjoy them for their humorous company. I can say that although they are quite lazy and humorous creatures, they are a very welcome and friendly creature to be around.

Walrus gives a thermoregulation buff to the rider.

Walrus may technically be terrestrial, but they are MUCH more adept in the water than they are on land.

Notes/Trivia

  • The Walrus's ability to gather pearls is a reference to the real life animal, who mainly feeds on oysters and other shellfish on the sea floor rather than fish.
  • The Walrus has actually become sort of a running popular joke among Additional Creatures players because of its derpy nature.
  • The evolutionary history of the Walrus is pretty interesting, as in the Cenozoic walruses used to be a diverse group alongside Seals and Sea Lions. Today, however, the Walrus is the last of its kind.
  • The Walrus used to be in the original Additional Creatures mod, but have since been moved to Additional Creatures: Aquaria. The Walrus also received a TLC later on where it got a new model, became larger, and got new abilities.
  • The Walrus in Additional Creatures, akin to actual walruses are sexually dimorphic. The males have larger tusks than the females.
