That is a really interesting animal.* I don't think I have actually ever seen a Yak before. It looks like a cross between a Moose and Water Buffalo with midgit horns.* It has a peculiar look on it's face in the first picture.* Kind of like it's trying to pass gas.* Oh, I see in second picture that familiar smile of relief.* [img]/forums/images/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]** *You are right, the sunlight compliments the shot.* *Steve

LOL...I was actually thinking the same thing when I saw the first pic. Thestance looks a little...strained. Much better in the second shot! Good job posing him!

Haw! You guys are not alone. Actually, I was thinking it looks like it was put together from several different animals. (No offense Mr. Yak):lol:

Looks like he heard that the lion pedastel in Bryant Park is vacant and their looking for a Yak to replace him.

Very picturesque! :!:

thank you for the kind words everyone.. he does look to be an odd hybrid of several animals doesnt he?

just for further info, he is native to the mountainous bamboo forest of china where he shares some habitat with the giant panda.. hunting and deforestation has limited his numbers recently..
