Occasionally spotted in the woodland of the Spring Mountains, burros were introduced by miners and ranchers to America in the 1500s. After their eventual release, burros were able to adapt to Nevada ecosystems and sustain populations throughout time. Slightly smaller than the wild horse, adult burros weigh around 500 pounds and graze on many different types of vegetation. These feral animals are known to kick and bite, so always enjoy them from a safe distance, never attempt to feed them, and be cautious on mountain roadways.
