TAMAULIPAS, México (WJBK) — A rare and unusual cross-breed makes its debut at a zoo in Mexico.
It’s a zonkey, a cross between a zebra and a donkey.
The animal, named Khumba, was born at the Reynosa Zoo on April 21 and there was a little romance involved.
WTVY reports Khumba’s mother, a female Zebra named Rayas, and his father, a blue-eyed albino donkey named Ignacio, used to visit each every afternoon. Eventually, Rayas became pregnant.
The zoo says the specimen is extra rare because zebra and donkey chromosomes were not thought to be compatible.
