Equus africanus asinus
Slow, agile, patient, and has great endurance. Donkeys are closely related to horses and can mate with them: a male donkey and a female horse produce a mule; a male horse and a female donkey produce a hinny. Donkeys are smaller than horses and have longer ears, upright manes, and coarse tails.
Despite their limited behaviors, donkeys are very intelligent, friendly, curious, and playful when put at ease. Donkeys’ misunderstood stubbornness comes from a heightened survival instinct, which makes them freeze rather than perform unsafe tasks.
Domesticated around 3,000 BCE to carry and pull loads.
