The yatac is the consummate domestic animal, used for labour, transport, and even a source of food. Yatac in general respond well to direction and can survive on very little, and this inexpensive, compliant apathy makes them many a farmer’s livestock of choice.

The yatac’s iconic circular horn is in fact two—throughout the creature’s adolescence, they continually spiral inward until they meet, creating a single, solid ring. While eyecatching, this ring also serves a purpose: during mating season, a male yatac will charge another in an attempt to catch its snout within the ring. If successful, he will immediately roll to the ground and, ideally, break his opponent’s neck. However, even an unsuccessful charge can shatter the opponent’s jaw or skull.
