A skull of a Yahoo in the British Museum.

Yahoos (later called "Homo Gulliverus") are vile and savage creatures, filthy and with unpleasant habits, resembling human beings far too closely for the liking of Lemuel Gulliver who discovered them. They coexisted with the calm and rational society of intelligent horses Houyhnhnms.

The Yahoos were theorized by Lemuel Gulliver to be somehow related to a similar degenerating hominid found in Watkinsland, the "rat dog".

A skull of a Yahoo was to be found in the British Museum.

Source materialEdit

Yahoos appear in the novel Gulliver's Travels (1726) by Jonathan Swift.
