The wild ass subspecies: the Somali ass (E. africanus somaliensis) and the Nubian ass (Equs africanus africanus), are thought to have played a role in the development of the modern donkey. However, mtDNA results suggest that the Nubian is the only wild species genetically contributing to the current domesticated donkey. These two wild asses still exist but are on the IUCN Red List as critically endangered species.
