"Zonkey" born in a zoo in Mexico
A zonkey, a rare cross between a zebra and a donkey, has been born at a zoo in northern Mexico.
Reynosa zoo in the northeastern state of Tamaulipas said the animal, which they have named Khumba was born on April 21.
It said Khumba's mother is a female zebra called Rayas while the father is a dwarf, blue-eyed albino donkey named Ignacio that lives on a nearby farm.
According to the zoo, Rayas used to visit Ignacio every afternoon, and eventually she got pregnant.
Khumba is a rare case in the animal world because the zebra and donkey chromosomes are not compatible.
