The Yak is a long-haired bovine found throughout the Himalayan region of south Central Asia. Yaks are herd animals. Yaks secrete a special sticky substance in their sweat which helps keep their under-hair matted and acts as extra insulation. Yaks have long shaggy hair to insulate them from the cold. Wild yaks can be brown or black. They eat grasses, lichens and other plants.
