Muskox (Ovibos moschatus) is an Arctic mammal of the family Bovidae, noted for its thick coat and for the strong odor emitted 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.
Musk ox. They are about the size of a sheep. They look pre-historic. Their undercoat of fur is the warmest substance on earth, I'm told. It is gathered and spun into yarn called qiviut.(Excellent Scrabble word.) I knitted a scarf from it...another thing I like!
