Zonkeys and Hebras

I don’t think that too many people know of an animal called a zonkey— or the animal called a hebra.

A zonkey is a cross between a donkey and a zebra.

A hebra is what you get when you cross a horse with a zebra.

You can also call them Zebra Hybrids or Hybriods, if it makes you feel any better.  (Don’t know why it really would though.  Or why you’d feel bad in the first place. 😉 )

A Zonkey
A hebra or zorse as some call it.
Just a random pic I thought would make you laugh.

  1. A hebra is the result of a male horse and a female zebra. A zorse is the result of a male zebra crossing with a mare. A zonkey is the offspring of a cross of a male zebra and a female donkey. A donkra is the result of a male donkey and a female zebra. I think there are different names because the cross of male donkey and a mare is a mule, but the reverse cross of a stallion with a female donkey produces something different – a hinny!
