Domestic Donkey

Equus asinus asinus

The donkey is a domestic descendant of the African wild ass. Donkeys are believed to have been first domesticated over 5,000 years ago!



Size: 36" and under
Weight: 102 - 158kg



The African wild ass is found in arid areas of northeast Africa. Domestic donkeys are kept all over the world as working animals.



Donkeys are herbivores (plant-eaters) feeding on fresh and dry grass. Their special digestive system means they can break down very tough vegetation.



Female donkeys, known as Jennets or Jennies, are pregnant for around one year and give birth to a single foal.
