There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

The Wild Yak- bos mutus (the mute ox) probably need it's own honourable section Wink very little verified data is available about this beast, Maybe as a community we can gather as much interesting data as possible, so here it is- a thread to share any materials that may relate to wild yaks - behaviour, physical traits, pictures, distribution, numbers, even domestic ones if it can compare to it's wild counterpart in any way and so on. I will add some stuffs soon, in the meantime, found this cool video



First impression I got was it was a wild yak which came to take over a domestic herd and challenged a domestic bull cuz it resembled very much a wild yak interms of it's  general build, tall hump and notably forward curving and pretty thick horns but then i realized this was all filmed in close proximity, a wild yak would be too dangerous for this and maybe it's close to a wild variety but still a domestic one.

The wild yak doesn't look as hairy as it's domestic cousin specially it's head and shoulder region, maybe it's underwool is very dense and it's not all cumbersome shaggy beast like domestic ones. It looks surprisingly aurochs like- the head and horn placement

Post #1 video - a bull yak can apparently be as aggressive as any other wild bovine. Impressive.

Probably not since it is a highly protected species and it's unlikely they deliberately circulated the footage on internet had they harmed it in anyway.

That first video in your posting quoted here is one of the most impressive ones, which I can remember. You don´t see every day that big animal in the air like that... There we see some bovine power!!! When that animal charges, only an elephant can feel safe Grin

.. ...add to that an intimidation factor- long hair and dreadlock tail swinging wildly, the first one in the video seems pretty much a wild yak tossing a domestic herd bull, here are some interesting fights of domestic yaks I have selected
