Muskox or Muskoxen, are a prehistoric looking animal that thrives in the cold climate of Alaska's arctic. They survive these severe temperatures in part due to their dense undercoat of woolly fur called Qiviut, which is said to have an insulation factor 10 times that of wool. They have changed little since the ice age. They are a herd animal, and in general, are not difficult to approach for photography. The images here are from Alaska's arctic region in central and western Alaska.
