This article is about an older version of DF.
A large mammalian herbivore. It has long fur and curving horns. It can be found in the mountains.

Yaks are large, milkable domestic animals. They require significant pastureland to survive; this limitation makes them poorly suited as livestock for a meat industry. Yaks can serve as pack animals and are a common sight in merchant caravans. The males of the species are known as "yak bulls", while the females are known as "yak cows".

Some dwarves like yaks "for their shaggy hair".
