Pedro is the smallest donkey in the world. It only measures 50.8 centimeters and is the maximum attraction of all those who observe and encounter it. Pedro’s mom, she’s that small, too.

Watson, its owner, remains afraid that some unreliable individual will abduct him; that’s why he keeps him very protected at his farm in Springwell, London.
This is what the lucky owner of the world’s smallest burrito says: “It’s very valuable, we knew it was going to be small, it barely gets to my knee.”
But these tiny donkeys are not a genetically stunted species or some growth defect, but it is a whole breed of donkeys, coming from the African continent and also from the Mediterranean in the islands of Sicily and Sardinia. Babies little donkeys are born about 25 or 30 centimeters tall and weighing approximately 6 and 15 kilograms.
However, despite their poor stature and thickness, these animals are able to move very heavy things, as they have exemplary muscularity and strength. The most interesting thing is that their personality is too friendly and they love children.
Usually, on European farms these mini donkeys are used to protect sheep from ferocious dogs, as well as wolves, coyotes, foxes, etc. When it comes to attacking, the little donkey is very effective.
