The most curious hybrid animals
List with little known hybrid animals. These are the product of crossbreeding between animals of similar genetics. Its existence, in most cases, is thanks to human intervention.
A dzo is a male hybrid animal that is the result of crossing a yak with a domesticated cow. In this way an animal is obtained that is stronger than cattle and that can be used in agricultural tasks. It is used in Nepal and Mongolia
The beefalo is a bovine resulting from the cross between an American bison and a domestic cow of any race. Depending on the breed with which the bison has been crossed, the beef has different aspects, although it is more physically similar to a bull or a cow of great bulk and thick fur.
An unusual case of a sheep and goat hybrid was reported by veterinarians in Botswana in 2000, called the "Botswana toast." The animal was born naturally from the union of a goat with a male sheep that stayed together.
The unique mixture of a pheasant and a chicken. The mixture in poultry is extremely rare in nature.
MULA - BURDEGAN
BURDEGAN = horse + donkey, MULA = mare + donkey
The zubrón is a hybrid animal obtained from the cross of domestic cattle and the European bison. The European bison is analogous to the American bison. The name Zubrón was officially chosen from the hundreds of proposed names sent to the weekly Polish magazine Przekrój during a contest organized in 1969.
The Caraval, also called Cara-Serval, is the cross between a female fawn cat and a male caracal. They have a pattern of spots similar to Serval, but in a darker background. These are bred for the pet market. A Servical is the cross between a male fawn and a female caracal.
A balf is a hybrid animal, born from the union of two different species of oceanic dolphins (Family Delphinidae): A female bottlenose dolphin and a false killer whale. Only two cases of this hybridism are known, never having been registered in nature. These specimens were born in captivity.
The Grolar is a rare hybrid that occurs both in captivity and in the wild. It is the mixture of a Polar Bear and a Grizzly Bear
A bed is a hybrid between a camel and a llama, born by artificial insemination carried out by scientists who studied the close relationship between both species. The dromedary camel represents six times the weight of the flame, therefore artificial insemination was necessary to prey the female flame (pairings between male and female dromedary flame were tried unsuccessfully) Although the hybrid was even smaller than a baby of flame, the bed had short ears and the long tail of the camel, without hump and a cleft in the legs more similar to that of the flame than to that of the dromedary.
Motty was the only hybrid, whose existence was proven, between an Asian and an African elephant. He was born on July 11, 1978 at Chester Zoo, in the north of England. His mother was the Asian elephant Shebba and his father the African elephant Jumbolino. Despite the intensive human care he received, Motty died from an umbilical infection twelve days after his birth. Post-mortem studies revealed that the death was due to necrotic enterocolitis and Escherichia coli infection.
A Pumapardo is a hybrid between male puma and female leopard. The reverse hybrid is not known because males of both felids are larger than females, and leopards are already larger than pumas, so a male leopard would not see a female cougar as a potential mate.
The cebroid is a hybrid animal obtained from the crossing of a zebra with any other equine. There are two possibilities, which cross zebra with horse: Zebrallo, or zebra with donkey: zebrasno.
It is a hybrid canine resulting from the union of a wolf (Canis lupus lupus) and a dog (Canis lupus familiaris).
A leopon is the product of a cross between a male leopard and a lioness. The head of the animal resembles that of the lion and the rest of the body resembles that of a leopard with diffuse spots.
The ligre is the hybrid product of the cross between a lion and a tigress. Its appearance is that of a gigantic lion with diffuse tiger stripes. The opposite is the case with the tigón (also called tigrón or tigral): this cross between tiger and lioness produces a smaller and more stylized animal, with long legs and tail that give it a loose and less corpulent appearance.
