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!".
