Bos Grunniens or Grunting Ox

Have you ever noticed how children and animals will do the funniest, cutest, or most interesting things until you try to get them on film? Must be some sort of instinctive thing, they know if you record their action they might lose their audience. I've been trying to get a video of the yaks "talking" to each other. I'll get a little bit of it and then they stop their conversing. They'll grunt to each other at length, unless I'm there with the camera. I think they must tell each other to stay quiet, there's a camera nearby. The other day Little Bear decided she needed to talk to me, so finally, here's a little video of her very brief oration, after which she decided that she needed to add a little bluff charge in my direction. The video begins with her talking. You might have to watch it more than once to hear the two times she "speaks".

Pin It Now!

You are brave. I wouldn't have stood still for that. You'd have heard some grunting alright--me running away from that rushing yak! Is this a young yak? Do they often fool around like that? Is this just her sense of humor, or her way of protecting her territory? Just curious.
