Rare 'zonkey' born at Crimean zoo Published: August 8, 2014

A zoo in the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea has welcomed its latest arrival -- a "zebroid", or "zonkey", which was born after a lonesome zebra got intimate with a donkey, according to AFP.


Named Telegraph by keepers at the Taigan zoo park in southern Crimea, the foal's head and body are the solid brown of a donkey but his legs have the characteristic black stripes of a zebra.

Born last week, "Telegraph is very popular with visitors" who can watch him romping around with his mother, according to zoo director Oleg Zubkov.
