I was randomly searching for some cute animals in the news and came across these animal hybrids. Of course I knew about the ligon and the zorse, but the rest are amazingly new to me. Who knew?
“Hybrid, strictly defined, an offspring that is a cross between different species, genera, or, in rare cases, families. More loosely defined, a hybrid can also be a cross between parents of different subspecies or varieties of a species.”
Wholphin – Cross between false killer whale and a bottle nose dolphin.
Liger – Cross between tiger and a lion.
Grolar Bear – Cross between grizzly bear and polar bear.
Zorse – Cross between a male zebra and a female horse.
Zonkey – Cross between a zebra and a donkey.
Jaglion – Cross between a male jaguar and a female lion.
Pumapard – Cross between a puma and a leopard.
Cama-Cross between a camel and a llama.
Beefalo – Cross between a cow and a buffalo.
