I think if I could ess my own dee, I would probably do it.

Who knew walruses were so well-endowed? Sea lions are not (500 lb animal; 3-5 inch baculum), although I assume that's because they evolved from bears, and bears are quite tiny. Walruses are in a different family from sea lions (and seals) so maybe they have a different lineage?
And why do I know so much about pinniped penises?
We all have our Dream Jeopardy Categories, I guess...
The walrus has the largest baculum "up to 63 cm (25 in) in length, the largest of any land mammal, both in absolute size and relative to body size." (quoted from Wikipedia), so yeah.
Well, I knew that already.
From an Adam Sandler movie.
A nice lady at the California Academy of Sciences told me it's for two reasons: one, because it's quite cold where they live, so you really need to counteract shrinkage, and two, because they have to work around that big fat belly, so having lots of length helps.
The Walrus baculum is quite impressive in person, it's like hefting a baseball bat. (See photo)
Actually, shrinkage does not occur when you have a baculum. And similar-sized species (the two elephant seal species) have a baculum less than half the size of the walrus.

And that's what Walrus technology is completely stagnant.

"You'd do it!""No you'd do it!""No you'd do it!""No you'd do it!"
Well, the beatles lyrics make a whole lot more sense now.
Actually, I had to laugh/roll eyes at that young lady anthropomorphising the walrus...
...but it was her boyfriend trying to goad her into a confession that was really hilarious, "You like that, don't you?"
HAH HA HA FAIL
