A walrus is a large animal that spends most of its time in the sea. They eat clams, sea snails and other animals from the bottom of the sea. They can live to about 50 years old, and a male walrus can grow to weigh between 1,600 and 1,900kg, and get 10-12 feet long. They are distantly related to the seal.
A weasel is a small animal related to the ferret and otter, and are found mainly in Europe. Weasels eat smaller animals like mice, rats and sometimes rabbits. They sometimes will eat chickens. Weasels are long and thin so they can go down small holes and eat animals that live underground.
The wedge-tailed eagle is the largest eagle in Australia, and one of the largest in the world with a wingspan of around 2.5 metres. It eats any animal that is small enough for it to catch, including rabbits, small kangaroos and lambs.
Wedge-tail eagles will also eat dead animals they find, and are commonly seen eating by the roadside eating kangaroos that have been hit by cars.
Whales are a large animal that lives in the sea. They are not fish, as they need to come to the surface to breathe, the same as we do when we are swimming. There are many different varieties of whale. Some eat fish, penguins and seals, but the majority of whales have a large mouth full of tiny bristles that they use to filter tiny sea animals out from the water to eat.
The whale is closely related to the dolphin.
Whippets are medium sized dogs that look like small greyhounds. They are gentle dogs, and don't snap, but they do like to chase cats. Because they have such a short coat they are not suited to be kept outside in cold weather, and with their friendly nature they make good indoor dogs.
