Donkeys have been used as working animals for at least 5,000 years and are still a lifeline to families in parts of Europe, Asia, Africa and South America.
Donkeys are not stubborn but can be reluctant to do anything that might be unsafe. They are far more intelligent than a horse, have very long memories and will always think before acting.
Donkeys are extremely nimble and can cross tricky terrain. They can see all four of their feet at the same time.
There are estimated to be 189 donkey breeds in existence.
Donkeys have incredibly efficient digestive systems, utilising 95% of what they eat.
