Musk Ox in Northern U.S.
Name: Bille B.
After reading some about the Musk Ox, I understand why
they have move to the colder climates. But, can they be reintroduced
into lower States like Wisconsin with its cold winters?
Every species is adapted to particular conditions. Some are wide ranging and
others have much narrower requirements. I do not know much about musk-oxen
specifically, but my guess is that they would not survive the long hot
summers of the temperate regions.
