As a young boy, Noatak used bloodbending on one of these animals as part of his instruction in the art by his father, Yakone. He did so with ease, and ignored the bellows of pain from the animal he was controlling. After being released from Noatak's hold, the creature fell to the ground before fleeing with the rest of its pack.
The ox goat is seemingly a cross between a musk ox and a goat. These animals are very large, sturdily-built creatures with long brown and white hair. They have two small horns on top of their heads and lengthy tails.
The ox goat is the first animal Noatak was known to bloodbend and the second of three animals that are known to have been bloodbent, the first being an elephant rat and the third being a pack of wolves.
