This festive wrapping paper depicts classic Christmas nativity scenes – but can you find one with an extra guest?

Each features the baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph, the Three Wise Men, an angel, a bull, a pig, a sheep and a lamb.

But only ONE includes the donkey which carried the family to the stable where Jesus was born.

The topical teaser was created by SPANA, a charity that works to improve the welfare of working animals in the world’s poorest communities.

A SPANA spokesman said: “Even today, donkeys are part of a huge invisible workforce of working animals that support the world’s poorest families.

“Worldwide, there are around 200 million working animals, such as donkeys, that do the jobs of trucks, tractors and taxis in developing countries.

“These hard-working animals make it possible for people in poor communities to earn a small income. But, unlike people in the UK, they don’t get to enjoy holidays or time off, and neither do their owners.”

The international animal charity provides free veterinary treatment to sick and injured working animals in developing countries.
