Is the musk ox the largest mammal on the ice?

    Muskox are up there, but polar bears can be larger. Muskox are, on average, from 397 to 882 lb in the wild — and zoo animals (probably overfed) can crest 1400 lb. Adult male polar bears, in contrast, weigh 880–1,500 lb. The largest polar bear on record reportedly weighed 2,2120 lb — over a ton. I’m not including walruses in this discussion, since they’re not really “on” the ice much, but are comparable in weight to polar bears.
