African Wild Ass

A durable and useful companion

Domestic donkeys vary in size and have a height of 90 to about 150 cm. They have large ears that can pick up distant sounds and help cool the blood. Donkeys are known for their reputation for stubbornness, but this trait is often attributed to a stronger instinct for self-preservation compared to horses.
