The donkey (also referred to as an ass, Equus asinus) is a domesticated animal in the horse family. A mule is the offspring of a male donkey (called a "jack") and a female horse (called a "mare.")

A donkey is an ungulate used for draying, or work purposes. The donkey is also the Democratic Party symbol, due to a political cartoon by Thomas Nast.

Donkeys play an important role in the Gospels, acting as a symbol of Jesus' humility: He made His triumphal entrance into Jerusalem on the first Palm Sunday riding on a donkey rather than a horse to show that He was not coming as a ruler, as some thought that the Messiah would do. Donkeys also feature in the Old Testament: in the book of Numbers, Balaam has a talking donkey - the only talking animal in the Bible apart from the serpent in the Garden of Eden.
