Equus asinus

Number 0085

Hi Mom! Here’s your donkey! It’s too bad no one requested a lamb and a cow and a baby human, because this baby donkey looks like he’d fit right in at a nativity scene.

I just realized, when I looked up the Latin name for donkeys, that the word asinine means, literally, ass-like, in the same way canine means dog-like and feline means cat-like and ovine means sheep-like.
