Male Wild Burro (Equus assinus)....2 of 3 in set

    Newer Older

    Found throughout the North american deserts, these asses were first introduced to the Desert Southwest by Spaniards in the 1500s
    Wild Burros can tolerate a water loss as much as 30% of their body weight, and replenish it in only 5 minutes drinking. (Humans require medical attention if 10% of body weight is lost to dehydration and require a full day of intermittent drinking to replenish this loss.)

    This Jack Ass was observed at Rhyolite, Nevada.
