Rare zonkey born in Mexico

Posted: Updated:
MEXICO - A northern Mexico zoo is welcoming a rare newborn, a zonkey.  It’s a rare cross between a zebra and a donkey! 

Zoo officials say the zonkey was born on Monday and was named Khumba. 

There’s video of Khumba with his zebra mother at the zoo.  The father is a dwarf albino donkey that lives on a nearby farm.  The two apparently have been spending a lot of time together. 

 A zonkey is a rare case in the animal world because zebra and donkey chromosomes are not compatible.
