Rare half-zebra half-donkey "zonkey" born at zoo in Mexico

A rare "zonkey" who has a zebra mother and a donkey father has been born at a zoo in Mexico.

The animal, which they have named Khumba was born on 21 April.

His mother is a zebra called Rayas while his farther is Ignacio, a dwarf albino donkey who lives at a nearby farm.

The match is rare because zebra and donkey chromosomes are not usually compatible.

Reynosa Zoo said that Rayas used to visit Ignacio ever afternoon and he would return the favour from time to time.
