Very rare Zebra / Donkey Hybrid. Then and now. (1999 - 2014) Hennops Offroad Trail. A cross between a zebra and a donkey is known by many terms including: zonkey, zebonkey, zebronkey, zebrinny, zebrula, zebrass, zedonk, and zebadonk. Donkeys are closely related to zebras and both animals belong to the horse family. These zebra donkey hybrids are very rare. In South Africa, they occur where zebras and donkeys are found in proximity to each other. Like mules, however, they are generally genetically unable to breed, due to an odd number of chromosomes disrupting meiosis.
Filmed at Hennops Offroad Trail just outside of Pretoria in South Africa in 1999 and then again in 2014.
