There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

This is a zonkey, created in captivity. I am wondering how they breed two different species and it does not have defects. By the way I am a new member! Lol

Welcome to the forum!


They do have birth-defects very frequently, most are sterile. Although the unpredictability is high as some ligers & tigons are known to be fertile & farther gives liligers or litigons.
Mothers often abandons these babies as well.

However people have perfected crossbreeding horses & donkeys to give mules over thousands of years. Some breeds are kept for that breeding purpose only.
