THE CHIL­DREN OF TI­BET (BOS GRUNNIENS)

Escape! Malaysia - - Postcard -

The yak (Bos Grunniens) - a bovine mam­mal, lives on the grass­lands of the Ti­betan re­gion of China and through­out the Hi­malaya re­gion of south­ern Cen­tral Asia. This cow-like species is a close rel­a­tive of the Aurochs, the ex­tinct wild cat­tle of Europe. Yaks are in­di­vid­u­ally named and dressed up in rich Ti­betan her­itage fab­rics due to the sig­nif­i­cance they play in the ev­ery­day lives of the Ti­betan peo­ple as they serve as a source of food and trans­porta­tion.
