The largest and heaviest pinniped the male walrus is a huge animal. They swim quite slowly and use mainly their hind quarters for propulsion. They are good divers and feed on bottom living invertebrates particularly molluscs of which they consume only the soft muscular foot or siphon. How they extract these is still a mystery but it is thought to be through some form of suction.
