Funked-Up Animal Of The Day: Zonkey

I saw one of these in Tijuana. Except it was just a donkey painted to look like a zebra, which is probably what this is. If not, the poor guy is destined to a life of doing everything half-assed.

Zonkey: cutest hybrid ever

A donkey and a zebra have come together to prove Mother Nature doesn't discriminate when it comes to love.

This little guy is the offspring of an affair between said zebra and an endangered species of donkey at an animal reserve in Florence.

So enamoured was the brawny zebra, he climbed his protective fence to spawn a breed of hybrid seen rarely before; a zonkey.

Born in Florence on Saturday, baby Ippo is "the only one of his kind in Italy", according to owner Serena Aglietti, who told ansa.it he is in good health.

Other zonkeys have been reportedly sighted in Germany, China and Georgia.
