Then we continue to muskox park and views ramp - here we come very close to the musk ox . Your guide will tell and show you about muskox history, way of life and a exhibition.
The Musk ox is an arctic animal that during millions of years has adapted to climate changes such as ice ages and warm periods. For about 50 000 years ago, when the man showed up and discovered that the musk ox was an easy prey to hunt, they were hunted to extinction in Europe. Swedens now only wild musk oxen are in the mountain area west of the village Tännäs in county Härjedalen. These animals are descendants of five individuals who immigrated in 1971 from Dovrefjäll in Norway. The Musk oxen in Myskoxcentrum are from Ryöya near Tromso in northern Norway. These animals are quite used to people. The enclosure in Tännäs is 15 hectares and contains three smaller enclosures, which can be used for breeding and research purposes. The visit enclosure is a ramp two feet above the ground, from where the animals can be observed. To see the mysk ox centra you book a guided tou
