Pictured:  The walrus which looks like a brain.<br />
<br />
This huge walrus is all brawn - and looks just like a brain.  The male looks very similar to a human brain thanks to the pink lumps - known as nodules - all over his shoulders and back.  Sharp white tusks, pink nodules and a whiskered moustache make for a very odd looking marine mammal. <br />
<br />
The fully-grown adult is almost 10ft tall and weighs around a ton.  Photographer Franco Banfi, of Cadro, Switzerland, was in Svalbard, in the Arctic Ocean, when he spotted the herd of walruses.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
