Madre de Dios! Es el Pollo Diablo!
A '''yak''' is a hardy shaggy [[bovine]] [[ruminant]] mammal commonly domesticated in [[Tibet]] and neighboring areas of central [[Asia]].

Yaks are extremely useful animals:
+
!Sí He dejado en libertad los prisioneros y ahora vengo por ti!
 
+
*They work as beasts of burden, carrying substantial burdens at high altitudes where horses cannot survive. Yaks are extremely sure-footed.
+
 
+
*They give good yields of milk which is made into [[cheese]] and [[butter]], the latter of which is an essential additive in the [[tea]] enjoyed in Tibet.
+
 
+
* Their meat, which is prized for its fatty texture, is eaten and rendered into oil as a source of illumination.
+
 
+
*Their hide, hair and horns are used for making clothing, constructing [[yurt]]s, and many other purposes.
+
 
+
Domestic yaks commonly wear bells round their necks, to facilitate locating them, keeping herds together, and to distinguish them from wild yaks.
+
 
+
A hybrid between the yak and the domestic [[cow]], the dzho (or zo), is also common in the same regions.
