ANIMALS : The beautiful animal kingdom is an important and vital part of our natural ecosystem. We humans can learn a great deal by carefully observing and protecting them.
Burros grow to be about half the size of a horse. Males are called jacks, and females are called jennies. The differences between horses and burros are easy to see and hear. Burros have longer ears and shorter manes and tails and they bray instead of whinny.
Most burros, regardless of coat color, will have dorsal stripes and shoulder crosses, dark ear marks, as well as light points of white muzzle and eye rings, and white belly and inner legs.
