At maturity (after the third year teeth have erupted) the teeth of the upper jaw should meet evenly with the teeth of the lower jaw ­ not overshot (³Parrot Mouth²) or undershot (³Monkey Mouth²). Up to a 1/4² variation from an even bite (extreme limit) is accepted for registration into the Miniature Donkey Registry.


A good bite is important for grazing, chewing, digestion, nutrition and ultimately longevity.
