Junior Editors Quiz on ANIMALS QUESTION: What is a yak? ANSWER: Th» yak is a large wild ox that lives high in the mountains of Tibet In central Asia. Sometimes it grows to be more th«n six feet tall at the shoulder and weighs mora than a thousand pounds. It has wide, sharp horns and is a dangerous animal to hunt. The yak is a distant relative of the American bison or buffalo and, for the people of Tibet, it serves much the same purpose as the buffalo did for the Indians. Its flesh is used for food and its hide and fur provide Tibetans with everything from clothing to saddles. Tibetans have domesticated their yaks, something the Indians never did with the buffalo, and yaks have become a major form of transportation among the mountains of Tibet, a country of about a half million square miles 1 which has no railroads. FOR YOU TO DO: Certain special animals are important to different peoples around the world, like Hie yak is to Tibetans and the buffalo was to the Indians. See if you can find out what animals •re of special importance to the people of the Philippines and Peru. {Sara Gates of Fulton, N. Y., wins $10 for this question.
