Walk-around of the Papo Wild Animals Yak, Bos mutus (Przewalski, 1883) = Bos grunniens mutus. Shoulder height 76 mm, scale approx. 1:20 - 1:26. Human figure is approx. 1:22.5 scale.

 :) That's a lovely Yak!

Yesterday I watched one of these German TV zoo shows :-[ ;D - they showed a herd of five female Yaks having fun in the snow. Papo's figure looks just like them.
        Oh ... and the Preiser woman is a nice scale figure, too :).

Another star from Papo, wonderful figure!!! Thank You for sharing photos :D  :))

Thanks, Helge & Ana! :) This one here is apparently supposed to be the wild form, other colours (e.g. the Schleich Yak) are obviously representing domesticated yaks. Oh, the woman is by Pola, from a set of three figures named "Mr. Speedy" or "Herr Eilig".

I couldn't agree with you any better, Ms. Ana. The photos really did justice to this model. Heavily built and realistically sculpted, even down to the hair fabrics. Really belongs to my pantheon of awesome bovids.  ;D

Not sure; I found the Scleich version (which is very good) on eBay

Does the Scheich version represent a wild or domesticated Yak?
I'm looking for a wild one for my Pleistocene display.

The Schleich version was sold in the Wild Life line, but the paler color suggests domestic. Honestly, it could probably be used for either

BTW, an eBay search reveals two Papo yak available in Europe

I found mine for sale at a used bookstore, so I can't be of any help on that front. I prefer to use the Papo as a wild yak and I'm looking for the Schleich as a domestic yak.
Always looking for new species...
