According to Wikipedia’s Muskox article, musk oxen live in herds numbering 12-24 in the winter and 8-20 in the summer. Musk oxen from Arctic areas in Canada, the United States, and Greenland, and though they have the word ‘oxen’ in their name, they are actually more closely related to sheep and goats rather than oxen.

Things have been very snowy, and very chilly around here lately. So, being surrounded by the wintery weather, we couldn’t help but think of some Arctic animals and figured we’d do an Arctic animal special here on ACAD.

Our first animal is the Arctic fox. To be precies: arctic fox pups! Aren’t these little foxes just the sweetest ever? I want to hug them so badly!

Hi everyone. Aren’t these two little sweeties far too cute for words? I think so. Their noses are incredibly pink, their whiskers very goofy, and they’re so sleepy… I hope these little mice help boost your holiday spirit.

You guys must know by now how big a fan I am of animals, and dogs, and certainly of dachshunds! This is why my sister sent me this picture of the adorable little sweetie you see here. Just look at how floppy his ears are! Look at that sweet face! This puppy is too distracting…

Tune in tomorrow for day 1 of our third annual ACAD Holiday extravaganza: Christmas Countdown!

Aren’t these gundis just the sweetest? Look how absolutely soft and adorable they are!
I bet some of you guys are wondering what a gundi is. According to the amazing site ZooBorns, gundi are rodents that can be found in the rocky deserts of North Africa. Wikipedia’s Gundi article also explains that gundis have four toes on all feet, and the middle toes of their hind feet have comb-like bristles, which is why gundis are also know as comb rats.
