A yak is a hairy animal that lives in Asia. It looks like a big, hairy cow. Yaks are members of the cow family. Like cows, they have four skinny legs and big, round bodies. They also have long noses and horns on top of their head. But a yak is much bigger than a cow. They are between five feet (1.6 metres) and seven feet (2.2 metres) tall when they are grown. That is taller than a man! They are also as long as a small car if you measure them from their nose to the end of their tail. There is one funny thing about yaks.
