African wild ass has short, smooth fur that is light grey to fawn color and white on the underside and limbs. An upright mane on the back of their neck is black at the tips of those hairs. They are believed to be the ancestors of domestic donkeys. They can also survive in desert habitats as they are adapted to do so.
These wild species are currently Critically endangered. They have been captured in the wild and domesticated for centuries and interbred with domestic animals, which has caused their population to have plummeted. Furthermore, they also suffered from being hunted for traditional medicine and food.
