Muskrat-Muskbag-Where Found-Where is the muskbag of the muskrat located?
The musk is found in two glands, those of the male muskrat being much the largest. Now when you skin a male muskrat, look closely at the fat on the under parts, well back, and see if you cannot find two thick, creamy yellow sacks, rather rough surfaced and full of fine veins. These are the musk castors, and if you remove them carefully and squeeze them, each will yield from three to twelve drops of a thick, amber colored musk. They contain the most musk in the early spring.
