ZORSES

A zorse is a zebroid, specifically the offspring of a zebra stallion and a horse mare. The rarer reverse pairing is sometimes called a horbra (or hebra). Like most other animal hybrids, the zorse is usually sterile.

The zorse is a strong animal with traits from both its parents.

ZONKEYS

A zonkey (also known as zebrass, zebronkey, zeass, zeedonk, zedonk, zebadonk, zenkey, donbra, donbri, donkra, zebrinny, zebrula, noochie, clive) is a cross between a zebra and a donkey. The generic name for crosses between zebras and horses or asses is zebroid or zebra mule. “Zonkey” is not the technically correct name for such a cross. The most commonly accepted terms are zebrinny, zebrula, and zedonk. Donkeys are closely related to zebras and both animals belong to the horse family. Zonkeys are very rare.

In South Africa they occur where zebras and donkeys are found in proximity to each other. Like mules, however, they are genetically unable to breed, due to an odd number of chromosomes disrupting meiosis. However, in The Origin of Species, Charles Darwin reported a case of a zonkey that apparently bred with a bay mare to produce a “triple hybrid”.

Usually a zebra stallion is paired with a horse mare or ass mare, but in 2005, a Burchell’s Zebra named Allison produced a zonkey called Alex sired by a donkey at Highland plantation in the parish of Saint Thomas, Barbados. Alex, born April 21, 2005, is apparently the first zonkey in Barbados.

Breeding of different branches of the equine family, which does not occur in the wild, results in infertile offspring. The combination of sire and dam also affects the offspring. A zebrinny is the offspring of a male horse and a female zebra; a zebrula is the offspring of a male zebra and a female horse; a zedonk is the offspring of any zebra and any donkey.
