Donkeys are very strong and intelligent animals. They will not do something that is considered as unsafe. They come in herds and make the strongest donkey the leader of the herd. Also, donkeys groom each other in the same ways monkeys and chimps do. They are not easily started like horses are and are curious creatures. They make decisions based on their safety. A donkey can hear another donkey call to them from 60 miles away in a desert. They have fairly large ears, which can cool them down. Donkeys can live for over 50 years. Another interesting fact is their fur is not waterproof so they do not like being out in the rain and it can damage their health. Lastly, they do not mind being surrounded by a herd of goats, even though they enjoy being with a herd of other donkeys.
