(Warning - photos in this post will be disturbing to all readers)
Once thing you need to get used to when working in the Arctic is that you never know what you may encounter around the office. Several times in the last few months I have walked into our office kitchen and been greeted by giant frozen char (really big fish), dried reindeer, muktuk (whale skin and blubber), frozen muskox, and (my personal favorite), skinned muskrat!
Below is the most disturbing picture. Skinned muskrats. Yes... those are furry feet! Sorry for the picture, but this is honestly what I saw in our office kitchen a couple of weeks ago! Apparently muskrat meat is delicious. I can't wait to try it. Really... I'll just have to wait until the memory of this photo fades.
