(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.

They're called "zedonks" and just happen to be running around ranches all over Texas. How rare can they be?
