Muskrat-Musk of-How is the musk obtained from the muskrat? Where is it found; is there any market for it, and how is it handled?
The musk of the muskrat is contained in two thick, cream colored sacks on the belly, just under the skin. In the spring they are filled with musk, and they may be removed and the contents squeezed into a small bottle. It has no commercial value, but is sometimes used for scent.
