SCORING YOUR TROPHY
Walrus

ON-LINE SCORING STEP ONE - Entering Your Measurements
FIGURE A
FIGURE B

All measurements must be made with a 1/4-inch wide flexible steel tape to the nearest one-eighth of an inch. Enter fractional figures in eighths, without reduction. Tusks SHOULD be removed from mounted specimens for measuring.

For example, if a point measures 7 and 2/8 inches, you would enter 7 2/8 in the space provided.

KIND OF WALRUS: Atlantic Pacific
A: GREATEST SPREAD (If Possible)
The greatest spread is measured between perpendiculars at a right angle to the center line of the skull. See Figure A.

Greatest Spread:

B: TIP TO TIP SPREAD (If Possible)
The tip to tip spread is measured between the tips of the tusks.
Tip to Tip Spread:
C: ENTIRE LENGTH OF LOOSE TUSK
The entire length of the loose tusk is measured over the outer curve from a point in line with the greatest projecting edge of the base to a point in line with the tip.
Length of Right Tusk: Length of Left Tusk:
D-1. CIRCUMFERENCE OF BASE
The circumference of the base is measured at a right angle to the axis of the tusk. DO NOT follow the irregular edge of the tusk; the line of measurement must be entirely on tusk material. See Figure B.
Base of Right Tusk: Base of Left Tusk:
D-2-4. HORN CIRCUMFERENCES
Divide Measurement C of the longer tusk by four. Starting at the base, mark both tusks at these quarters (even though the other tusk is shorter) and measure the circumferences at these marks.
