Equus asinus (species) (Equus (genus), Equidae (family), ... Living Organisms (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Wild asses are desert dwellers that often inhabit very arid regions that are inhospitable to other large mammals. Donkeys are the domesticated descendants of the wild ass and are considered the same species in many classifications. The native range extends from Morocco to Somalia and Mesopotamia to Oman; true wild asses are found today only in northern Africa and the Arabian peninsula. Their color ranges from bluish gray to fawn. Domesticated and feral donkeys can now be found in all parts of the world.
