You didn’t think I’d leave the horses out, did you?
This is a kiang! Equus kiang.
This wild ass lives on the Tibetan Plateau (next door to Everest), and is the largest wild ass species. Unsurprisingly, they eat grasses and leaves and live in herds. Somewhat more surprisingly, they have never been domesticated. No idea why. If I’d lived in Tibet a long time ago and seen that gorgeous thing I’d have made friends… Also, they can crossbreed with other equine species in captivity but any offspring will be sterile. Like mules. And zorses. They’re classified as least concern as far as conservation goes, so yay!
Sooo… Don’t be expecting a dragon in this group of animals I’ve been doing. Nothing against dragons, I love dragons. There just don’t happen to be any currently living on this planet. I may consider substitutes, but that would be unlikely.
