Hello, Meet A…Donkra?

July 7, 2011

You may be asking yourself what in tarnation is a donkra. Don’t worry. We all did the same earlier. But apparently there are donkras and zonkeys…if that doesn’t give it away, I don’t know what will…

Okay, if you’re still confused, you’re not alone. You see, there are things known as zebra hybrids in this world, and they are very rare. Apparently, they’re from a zebra and donkey, hence the names.

The donkra is the rarest of them all, and this is the 4th known case, and it happened in China! Of course, it wasn’t a chance meeting of four legged equines in the night, no. In fact, the Xiamen Haicang Safari Park wanted one, because it started a love quadrangle in their own park by putting the zebra in an enclosure with 3 donkeys.

And now, we have this: a super cute donkey-zebra hybrid!

Personally, I’m not sure I agree with getting animals to cross their species lines together to create new and very cute hybrids, but I’ll hold back on judgements.

Oh, and I think my favourite comment from the youtube video is this: It is not a donkey horse.

Enjoy the video!
