They have two sets of fur, one oily layer on the outside that allows water to slide off it and a layer on the inside which covers its body and keeps it warm.


They use their horns mainly for foraging, it is used like a shovel to help them dig for buried plants, and the fur means they can do this even when there’s snow on the ground.
