That's a note from my ADD -- two people, or perhaps one person twice, found my blog by typing in their browser the words 'somali wild ass'. Till now I've not written about Somali wild asses, dibokali to the natives. How one would make a correlation between the hunt for a rare Somali wild ass and an apothecary's ramblings is beyond my comprehension, unless the internet is trying to tell me something. In the meantime, however, I've learned a little bit about the Somali wild ass -- they're rare, fewer than an estimated 700 still live in the wild, and about 27 to 35 live in captivity within the United States. They are not donkeys as many people believe. It may be redundant to call an ass 'wild' as the term 'ass' refers specifically to the wild aspect, as compared to the domesticated term for a former ass, which is donkey.
