musk ox definition and meaning

What is a "musk ox"?

The musk ox is a unique and ancient species of large mammal that is well-adapted to the extreme cold of the Arctic regions. Musk oxen are known for their distinctive appearance, with a stocky build, shaggy coat, and curved horns. They are social animals that form close-knit herds and are known for their strong maternal instincts and protective behavior. Musk oxen are herbivorous, primarily feeding on grasses, sedges, and other vegetation. They are also known for their defensive behavior, using their strong bodies and sharp horns to protect themselves and their young from predators. Musk oxen have played an important role in indigenous cultures, as they have been a traditional source of food, clothing, and tools for many Arctic communities. Despite facing threats from habitat loss and climate change, efforts are being made to conserve and protect musk ox populations for future generations.
