(Newser) – Whether you call it a "zonkey" or a "donkra," one thing is sure: The creature born Sunday at a zoo in Southeast China is certainly rare. So far the foal—a cross between a female zebra and a male donkey who freely occupied the same enclosure—looks like a tall donkey, with faint black-and-white stripes on its body and legs. Though there were some complications at birth, the 65-pound creature is healthy and on display at the Xiamen Haicang Zoo, reports the Telegraph.
