The brief story of a dead walrus

The walrus (Odobenus rosmarus) is a large flippered marine mammal with a discontinuous distribution about the North Pole in the Arctic Ocean and subarcticseas of the Northern Hemisphere. The walrus is the only living species in the family Odobenidae and genus Odobenus. This species is subdivided into four subspecies: the Atlantic walrus (O. r. rosmarus) which lives in the Atlantic Ocean, the Pacific walrus (O. r. divergens) which lives in the Pacific Ocean,  O. r. laptevi, which lives in the Laptev Sea of the Arctic Ocean, and the Death Tricheco (Odobenus Mors Coma) which lives in the lagoon of Venice, Italy.
