A zonkey has been born!
If you are wondering what that is exactly… a zonkey is half Zebra, half donkey. This Italian wonder, named Ippo, was born in Florence earlier last week. Ippo is an extremely rare hybrid that only occurs when Zebras decide they need a little ass! Apparently this zonkey’s Dad jumped the fence, at a nature reserve, into the donkey pen and zonkey making ensued!
Inbreeding in the horse family is common often the babies are left infertile! That means no babies for little Ippo!
