Donkey

Donkey


Other name(s):
 Ass; Burro; Jack; Jenny

Scientific name: Equus africanus asinus

Country / Place of origin: Africa

History: The modern domesticated Donkey is a
descendant of the African Wild Ass, now considered an endangered species. Historically, the donkey is recorded as having been domesticated about the same time as the horse and became an essential beast of burden in ancient Egyptian, Nubian, and Middle Eastern cultures because they could carry close to a third of their own body weight (horses can comfortably carry 20%).

Donkeys were introduced to different parts of the world but only became popular in the United States in the mid-1800s
