The "wild" Burros are a huge attraction in Oatman, maybe the main attraction. The Burro's tend to keep "Bankers Hours" though, so get there during the mid morning or early afternoon at the latest. They are quite friendly, but seem to have the right-of-way on the street, which they share with the pedestrians and cars.

They like to eat carrots, but that's apparently not a good diet for the young ones, some of which we saw with small post-it notes stuck to the foreheads saying "Don't Feed Me!".

x About Us We started traveling Historic U.S. Route 66 as a destination in 2009. It's like a 2,400 mile long drive back in time from Chicago to Santa Monica! more
xDid You Know: Many parts of the old 4 lane Route 66 were reverted to a 2 lane road after 66 was realigned to the interstate. In many places the abandoned lanes are still there.
