Watching this webcam installed by the University of Alaska throughout the winter months is like traveling back in time to the Ice Ages. Instead of woolly mammoths, you can see musk oxen, a type of cattle, roaming these open spaces.

Musk oxen once lived in herds in Alaska, but most of their numbers disappeared from Arctic regions more than a century ago. Since the 1960s, the university’s Large Animal Research Station has been studying these hairy, hoofed beasts that resemble prehistoric creatures.

Male muskoxen get especially smelly during the annual mating season, so it wouldn’t be surprising if you happened to spot a local scientist conducting research with a peg on his nose. At such moments, you have to be grateful that smell-seeing has not yet become a reality.
