Yak is another relative of the Bovidae family and a representative of the mountainous terrains of Asia. Despite its weight and huge size, it’s
a skillful climber and easily moves on difficult mountainous terrain. Yaks do not require a lot of food and are able to survive even in very
cold conditions. In its natural habitat it feeds on grasses, herbs, and other scanty mountain vegetation. Their rough tongue is very helpful
for feeding on moss and lichen on the rocky ground. A domesticated yak is much smaller than the ones living in the wild.
