Meet The Animal

The American Burro can be found throughout all of the North American deserts. They are sure-footed, can locate food in barren terrain, and can carry heavy burdens for days through hot, dry environments. Since the wild burro has no natural predator, competitor, or common diseases, most young burros reach maturity and may live as long as 25 years in the wild.
