just to be curious... (Dovrefjell Nat. Park, Norway)

At the Dovrefjell National Park, in the central area of Norway, you can meet the beautiful musk ox: a large mammal of the caprinae family, known for its thick coat that reaches almost the ground and the characteristic odor of musk.

During the period of love, rival male musk oxen fight to conquer females: they collide head to head  at the speed of 60 km/h making a noise that you can hear in kilometers.
