The walrus has huge ivory tusks to perform several tasks. They use them as a lever to drag their own bodies and climb out of the cold water, to break holes in the ice and be able to breathe under the ice sheets, to defend their territory and their harem of females in the case of males and to dig the sea bottom for food. These animals also have special whiskers that help them detect seafood in the sea bottom where there is almost no light. The tactile sensing of these whiskers equates that of fingers.
