When You Cross a Zebra and a Donkey, You Get Very Adorable Results

Apr 29, 2014

Everyone, meet Khumba. His father, Ignacio, is a dwarf blue-eyed donkey, and his mother, Rayas, is a zebra. That makes him the very rare and special hybrid known as a "zonkey." (Other accepted names include zebroid and -- best of all -- zebrass or zedonk.)

Khumba -- who rocks some pretty awesome zebra-striped legs -- was born on April 21 at the Reynosa Zoo in northeastern Mexico, NBC12 reports. Make sure to watch him prancing like the adorable little lamb (er, zonkey) that he is in the video above.
