that's quite the hodgepodge of Praxian mounts there, good lord.

fun infodump:

yaks are closest to bison; in fact, there is bison DNA in them from a period in Asia before the initial movement of bison into the Americas.

technically a yak (gYag) is a male, a dri ( 'Bri) or nak (gNag) is a female

a half-yak half-cattle is called a dzo (mdzo) if male and a dzom (dzomo) if female or, in Mongolian, a khaenag. The males are infertile. Dzom are preferred to dri by more settled peoples because they give more milk and are gentler, but dri are hardier and herdsmen on the wilder side would rather have full-blooded dri, or perhaps quarter-cattle, because they are tough as nails.

 I am reminded of Fred Ward's Shinanju instructor in the movie Remo Williams, The Adventure Begins. 

 

Even now I can see him telling Fred "You move like a pregnant Yak!"

I'd imagine something like goes on in the Shan Shan of Kralorela as well, if the Yak Hsunchen are anything like the Pralori (or indeed the RW).

I'm definitely saving this image for future reference though. :D

"Hold your hands up", Remo does so and gets punched in the groin, "I did not say keep them there!"
