There are many animals that are perceived in one way but are actually quite different. This may be because of the way that the animal looked or that a movie was made about that specific animal and the characteristic became associated with that animal. Donkeys are one example of this. They appear dumb, but they are actually very smart animals.

Also, another name for a donkey is an ass. When people hear this, they think bad thoughts about donkeys. Once the idea stuck that donkeys were dumb, then everyone kept thinking that donkeys are dumb even though they aren’t. This way of thinking just continues on and on. It is also difficult to prove that donkeys aren’t dumb, so everyone continues to think that they are.

There are people who say that donkeys are dumb animals but this is not true. There are some facts that prove that donkeys may actually be very smart. They have the tendency to think more rationally as compared to horses. This is the reason why they do not immediately become startled or scared. Donkeys also have the natural tendency to remember the places that they have been to.

This means that they can go back to certain places if they would need to. Donkeys also have the tendency to make their own decisions based on what they think is proper and right. They might make decisions when they are curious but they will always put their safety in mind.
