Yaks for kids

Did You Know?

Yaks are tough animals that have learnt to survive in extreme conditions. They are related to buffalos and are mostly found in the Himalayas - almost 90% of yaks live there. Yaks have a thick, warm coat which keeps them warm and helps them survive extremely cold temperatures.

Fun fact: In the winter, yaks use their long horns as snow shovels when looking for plants to eat under a layer of snow.

Take a look at the yak on our Y is for Yak colouring page! Yaks like to live high up in the mountains where it is cold; their long fur keeps them warm.

We hope the kids enjoy the picture of a yak on our "Y is for Yak" poster, and that it helps them to remember their alphabet. Of course, most of us will never actually meet a yak...
