Zonkey born in Mexico has left the zoo officials more than intrigued

A very interesting and rather surprising situation was seen at the Mexican zoo; a crossbreed of a zebra and a donkey. This is a rare and certainly a very unusual crossbreed which the zoo officials have ever come across. Khumba, as they have named it, came into this world on the 21st of April and he was welcomed at the Reynosa Zoo in Mexico. However intrigued everyone might be with its arrival the story that lead to the incident is not so ‘Disney’ romantic after all.

As it appears, Khumba's mother, a female zebra named Rayas his father, a blue-eyed albino donkey named Ignacio would visit each other every afternoon and as a result of these suspicious visits, Rayas soon became pregnant.

The zoo claims that the animal is one of the rarest breed mixtures they have ever witnessed because it has always been believed that the chromosomes of zebras and donkeys are not meant to be compatible. But being rare doesn’t mean that Khumba is one of its kind or the only ‘zonkey’, as we would call it, on the earth. Ippo is another zonkey which was born in Italy and soon after it arrived in Florence, it became a huge tourist attraction and people were certainly astonished. Ippo’s story is rather a funny one. He was spawned when his father, the zebra, jumped over a fence and ran into an enclosure of donkeys. There are other zonkeys too in other parts of the world such as China and the US.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
