Q.

Donkeys are surefooted for which I am sure intelligence is required. Why then are donkeys considered dumb?

Among its category of mammals, the Donkey is the most intelligent of the beasts. It is smart enough to do exactly what it will choose to do, and wont do something it does not like or want to do. Having observed Donkeys while doing a stint near the Rann of Kutch, I can very confidently say that it makes a great pet. It is intelligent enough to look and act dumb so that the burden on its intelligence for our needs is lessened. Being surefooted is a matter of evolutionary anatomy. I dont think a surefooted cricket is more intelligent than a caterpillar, or for that matter a Donkey. I wouldnt mind being reborn a donkey if I am sure I can be adopted in your home as a pet... consider it a left handed complement LOL.
