This was a black and white picture I colorized in Photoshop. Matt looks happy and playful in this photograph holding a baby musk ox. Musk oxen were often hunted for food and several times their meat saved Matt & Peary from starvation. Musk ox meat was the most delicious tasting, like fine steak.  Musk ox fur was used to make special pants as the thickly matted hair is very warm.  Matt once saved Peary's life when an angry musk ox charged at Peary. Peary was out of ammunition and started to run. Matt had one bullet left in his gun. He shot the musk ox and it dropped dead before it gored Peary.
