  1. These creatures are epic. I remember seeing them in the Planet Earth series in full winter. They are the definition of a beast, such endurance and raw power. Posted 7 years ago
    1. I was surprised how small they are, I was expecting a much larger animal. Posted 7 years ago
      1. Funny that you say that, the only time that I have ever seen them were a few in the San Francisco zoo and you are absolutely correct - they are surprisingly small. I still agree with Ferdy's comment above. Posted 5 years ago
        1. I totally agree! Posted 5 years ago

The muskox is an Arctic mammal of the family Bovidae, noted for its thick coat and for the strong odor emitted during the seasonal rut by males, from which its name derives. This musky odor is used to attract females during mating season. Muskoxen primarily live in the Canadian Arctic and Greenland, with small introduced populations in Sweden, Siberia, Norway, and Alaska.
