This image from a 17th century Icelandic manuscript shows Ratatoskr with a horn.

In Norse mythology, Ratatoskr (drilling tooth, sometimes anglicized Ratatosk) is a red squirrel who runs up and down with messages in the world tree Yggdrasill and spreads gossip. In particular he ferried insults between the eagle Víðópnir at the top of Yggdrasill, and the dragon Níðhöggr beneath its roots.
