Wild donkeys stand on the barren heights and pant like jackals; their eyes fail for lack of food."

And the wild asses did stand in the high places, they snuffed up the wind like dragons; their eyes did fail, because there was no grass.
American Standard Version
And the wild asses stand on the bare heights, they pant for air like jackals; their eyes fail, because there is no herbage.
Young's Literal Translation
And wild asses have stood on high places, They have swallowed up wind like dragons, Consumed have been their eyes, for there is no herb.

Snuffed up the wind like dragons - תנים tannim here probably means the hippopotamus, who, after feeding under the water, is obliged to come to the surface in order to take in fresh draughts of air; or it may mean the wild asses.
