This is a creature that I did some really rough sketches of a while ago that I finished today! I call this creature a ‘Moss Yak’. Moss Yaks are the equivalent to our American Bison, they have a large afro made of mosses and plantation. As they age the mosses on their bodies grow and as they grow the old calcium deposits shift out of the skin to become solid rock-like formations. Generally the older a moss yak the larger the calcium deposits on the skin. Males have larger horns than females.
In mating season the moss on the bodies of the Yaks turn into more Autumnal colours such as reds and browns. From foot to the top of their backs an adult is around 9 feet in height and can weigh up to 7 tons.
