A musk ox will eat a lot of plant matter. Since the musk ox lives in the frozen tundra of the arctic, they often have to use their hooves to dig in the snow and ice to get to the roots of whatever was growing there before the frosts fell. During the summer, however, they don’t have to use their hooves to dig into the snow and frost. Instead, they eat the grasses and flowers that are growing at the moment.
In general, this is about the only thing oxen eat in the arctic. They aren’t found natively anywhere else, but they can be found by import in other parts of the world. They still eat mostly plants, but don’t have to dig for them unless they are in Alaska or other tundra-esque places.
