Adorable Wild Baby Burro
There is nothing cuter in the world than a baby animal, right!!?? The other evening we were just driving around on some of the dirt roads, exploring, and we came across this adorable baby wild burro with her mom and dad.
We actually saw the dad first. He is such a unique dark color I wanted to get a photo. As soon as we stopped, we saw this jenny and her baby. Soooooo many times we have said how much we want to see a tiny new baby burro.
This is the jack, or dad burro.
He was not happy to see me walking towards his little family. They let out a loud weird snort, braying combo noise. He did that a few times, and mom hustled the little one up the wash. The next morning we went back to the same wash and starting walking. We hadn’t gone too far when we saw the jack again, this time with what is clearly last years baby.
Fuzzy Wuzzy was not a bear, he was a burro.
Right away we saw the mom and baby too.
I was so glad to have better light, but again, they weren’t thrilled to see us and hustled up the wash.
The little ones fur looks like a little lamb, all curly and soft.
We climbed out of the wash, to see if we could find a spot were we could look down on them. We never saw them again, were they went is a huge mystery, but we did see this other little family. Again, this was a jack, and jenny with last years baby. Mom was clearly pregnant though.
The jack. He wasn’t quite as protective as the other one. Maybe having a tiny one around changes that.
These guys were curious though. They would walk away, then turn and check us out.
The little one getting his move on. Four off the floor.
So much fun to have all these guys around. I hope we can see more babies before we leave here. They seem to keep them well hidden in far off places, but now we know were a couple families hang out, we may get lucky again.
