WHERE DO I LIVE ?
WHO AM I ?
I have long horns and a bushy coat, and my two layers allow me to live in extremely cold conditions! I am a massive animal 2m high and weighing 1 ton on average, but that does not prevent me from being an excellent climber, going up mountains and crossing plains. I live in Central Asia in cold habitat, especially in northern Tibet and China. I particularly enjoy wide open spaces like plains and hills, where I can eat the grass and lichen that grows there. My species is classified as “vulnerable”. Nowadays we are often domesticated by humans, and used for agricultural work, transport or meat. Like many animals, we are also suffering from global warming which threatens our way of life and degrades our pastures.
