Extremely rare crossbreed born at Mexico zoo
Zoinks! Or should we say 'zonks.'
An extremely rare zonkey, a cross between a zebra and a donkey, has been born at a Mexico zoo, ABCreports.
The zoo says little Khumba is a rare case in the animal world because the zebra and the donkey chromosome are not known to be compatible.
"Turns out the father, a donkey named Ignacio, visits, if you know what I mean, the mother zebra almost daily at the zoo."
Although he is quite rare, there have been a few other instances of zonkeys. The Telegraph reported on one born at a zoo in China a few years ago.
And last year a zonkey born in Italy made international headlines - he's believed to be the Italy's only zonkey. He's become such an attraction that there's talk of a Disney cartoon based on him.
Hopefully, little Khumba will shoot to stardom, too!
