From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

A du'nak is a species of animal native to Rahnelo, a Sangheili frontier colony. A du'nak has two tusks[1] and yellowed horns that spiral backwards. The animals have multiple trunks with whiskered jowls, and muscular back legs. Du'nak are protected from Rahnelo's cold climate by a coat of glossy black[2] or mottled whitish-gray wool.[1]

Du'nak are domesticated by the Sangheili of Rahnelo and used as beasts of burden. Some Sangheili also fashion cloaks spun from the wool of a du'nak.[1] Gol 'Rhamee owned a du'nak, but both were killed in 2553 by Jiralhanae when Rahnelo was attacked by the Prelate Tem'Bhetek.[2]
