African wild donkey

An ancient ancestor of the modern donkey, this desert animal is loud as she is beautiful (remind you of any mom you know?!). Their brays can be heard from almost two miles away!

Surviving without water and keeping cool are the wild donkey's top priorities. Add a young foal to the mix to care for, and that's one impressive mama.

For the African wild donkey mom, definitely go for a fan. She can use all the help she can get keeping cool!
