Baby animals have the power to melt all hearts, even those made of steel. But while everyone enjoys seeing a palm-sized fox, deer, or a cute farm animal people rarely take their time to adore baby donkeys. These fuzzy creatures are usually the subjects of butt jokes, and it's quite a shame. To get them the attention their cute and cuddly looks truly deserve, Bored Panda has collected a heartwarming list of fuzzy and funny donkeys.

Donkeys aren't like horses at all; they differ physically, mentally and emotionally. Donkeys are more stoical in their behavior, startling less than horses. They are very social animals that simply cannot live alone, and if left without any company of other donkeys, they can fall into depression. Because of that, donkeys develop powerful emotional attachments with other animals. And you might've heard the saying 'Stubborn as a donkey,' but stopping and digging in their heels is actually sign of the donkey's intelligence, as they never run before making sure if there's real danger ahead. Oh, and if you thought that there's only one kind of these cute animals, you'd be amazed in finding that there are more than 100 donkey breeds, ranging from miniature donkeys to mammoth ones.

Scroll down to meet these big-hearted cute animals and upvote your favorites!
