Look! A Tundra Bison!

The Tundra Bison, known more commonly (and only, actually) as the Muskox.  The Muskox is one of the only ungulates in the arctic (the other is the Caribou).  They are native to the Alaskan Arctic but in recent history have been all but eliminated from the area.  Luckily thanks to successful reintroduction efforts populations have rebounded to a healthy level.  This one in particular was by himself, which is odd because usually they are in large herds of around 30 individuals.
