Even fog banks, and the feeding grounds of the whales, and ice floes, in given seasons, in their own waters, five the men of Torvaldsland
information as to their whereabouts, they utilizing such things as easily, as unconsciously, as a peasant might a mountain, or a hunter a
river. Marauders of Gor, page 56

The men of the country of Ax Glacier fish for
whales and hunt snow sleen. Marauders of Gor, page 139

He fingered the heavy tooth, on its chain, which hung about his neck, that tooth of a
Hunjer whale, dyed blue. Marauders of Gor, page

Once the blond girl cried out, the scoop in her hand.

“Look!” she cried, pointing over the port gunwale.

A hundred yards away, rolling and sporting, were a family of
whales, a male, two females, and four calves. Marauders of Gor, page 63

In this punishment, the girl, clothed or unclothed, is bound tightly on am oar, hands behind her, her head down, toward the blade. When
the oar lifts from the water she gasps for breath, only in another moment to be submerged again. A recalcitrant girl may be kept on the
oar for hours. There is also, however, some danger in this, for
sea sleen and the white sharks of the north occasionally attempt to tear
such a girl from the oar. When food is low it is not unknown for the men of Torvaldsland to use a bond-maid, if one is available on a ship,
for bait in such a manner. The least pleasing girl is always used. This practice, of course, encourages bond-maids to vie vigorously to
please their masters. An Ahn on the oar is usually more then sufficient to make the coldest and proudest of females an obedient, eager-to-
please bond-maid. It is regarded as second only to the five-lash Gorean slave whip, used in the south, and what among men of
Torvaldsland is called the whip of the furs, in which the master, with his body, incontrovertibly teaches the girl her slavery. Marauders of
Gor, page 66

We know that some animals are domesticated in Torvaldsland , and too are the tarsk and not just hunted as seen in other areas of Gor.  

…he was now regarded as much in the same category with the urts that one clubs in the Sa-Tarna sheds, or are pursued by small pet
, kept there for that purpose, or with the tiny, six-toed rock tharlarion of southern Torvaldsland, favored for their legs and tails,
which are speared by children. Marauders of Gor, page 153

I saw four
small milk bosk grazing on the short grass. In the distance, above the acres, I could see mountains, snow-capped. A flock of
verr, herded by a maid with a stick, turned, bleating on the sloping hillside. She shaded her eyes. She was blond; she was barefoot; she
wore an ankle-length white kirtle, of white wool, sleeveless, split to her belly. About her neck, I could see a dark ring. Marauders of Gor,
page 81

It is interesting to see here that the men of the North will send their cattle up to graze in the summer much like they do on earth.

There were only a few bosk visible, and there were milk bosk, the sheds I saw would accommodate many more animals. I surmised, as is
common in Torvaldsland, most of the cattle had been driven higher into the mountains, to graze wild during the summer, to be fetched
back to the shed only in the fall, with the coming of winter. Marauders of Gor, page 82

The men with the net drew it up. In it, twisting and flopping, silverfis
h, striped with brown, squirmed more that a stone of parsit fish. They
threw the net to the planking ad, with their knives, began to slice the heads and tails from the fish. Marauders of Gor, page 61

Her hair was blond and straight, tied behind her with a ribbon of blue wool, from the bounding
Hurt, dyed in the blood of the Vosk sorp."
Marauders of Gor, pages 1-2

Cernus of Ar wore a coarse black robe, woven probably from the wool of the bounding, two-legged
Hurt, a domesticated marsupial raised
in large numbers in the environs of several of Gor's northern cities. The
Hurt, raised on large, fenced ranches, herded by domesticated
and sheared by chained slaves, replaces its wool four times a year.

Forest Bosk

He would be referring to the wild bosk, which can be surly and territorial. In forested areas, they are substantially forward horned, and
attack, head down, directly. The Tuchuk bosk, on the other hand, usually have wide spreading horns. When angered they attack, a bit to
the side, to tear the enemy.
They also hook nicely, and, of one is caught on the horn, one can be hurled a hundred feet. They are large and powerful. The straighter
horns of the forest bosk are presumably an adaptation to the arboreal environment. They plains bosk, usually more widely horned.

The forest bosk tends to be territorial, and, as I have already suggested, it can be quite dangerous. Swordsmen of Gor (Electronic
book, Loc 5133 of 11941)
