We’ve all heard of those cool hybrid creatures mythological that exceed our imagination, but, did you know that the animal hybrids exist in real life and also impressive? Then, well look no further than this list! The hybrids are conceived mainly in a natural way, when 2 species of animals reproduce together, or through a biological process called “hybridization somatic”.
In Great.guru, we have found some of the hybrids more unique they really exist and their names are as interesting as their appearance.
The zebroide, also known as a zonkey or zorse, is in reality the offspring of a zebra and a horse or donkey. First appeared in the 19th century, created through the hibridacón somatic. There are until the day of today, but they are very rarely because they are infertile or sterile.
If you have not guessed by its name, a balfín or wholphin is a cross between a killer whale male, or also known as orca, and a female bottle-nosed dolphin. It has been reported that these creatures exist in nature, as they have been able to cross naturally, and only one of them now live in captivity in the aquarium of Sea Life Park in Hawaii. He was born in may of 1985 and was able to reproduce and have 3 wholphins in 2004.
The beefalo is the successful fertile offspring of the american buffalo and domestic cattle. Was created scientifically to combine the characteristics of both species for the industry of meat production. The first accidental crossings of the 2 species appeared approximately 1 800 years, and then were crossed intentionally during the 19th century.
One of the animaes hybrids most well-known is the liger. It is a cross between a male lion and a female tiger. Have beautiful patterns of white stripes on your skin, gradually disappearing, forming different patches. The liger weighs approximately 400 kilograms, which makes the hybrid animal-largest of the big cats. The ligres only exist in captivity, so that the environment of the parent species do not overlap.
Like the liger, the tigón is quite similar in its crossing. Both hybrids have the same parents of different genders. A tigón is a cross hybrid between a lion female and a tiger male. The tigones can only exist in captivity and are known to be sterile. Surprisingly, in 1943, a tigón female could mate with a male lion in the zoo of Munich Hellabrunn, and their small cubs were reared successfully to adulthood.
The appearance of the leopón reminiscent of a mythological creature of Egypt. A leopón is a cross very rare between a lioness and a leopard male. His head resembles a lion, while its body is identical to a leopard. The first leopón occurred in captivity in 1910 in India, but unfortunately not survived too, and now there are only 100 leopones all over the world. Living in captivity, because they were born in hybridization somatic.
7. Bear grolar
These creatures fluffy and cute, that resemble large animals peuches, are the dscendencia of a grizzly bear and a polar bear. Despite the fact that they are a hírido ursid rare, they occur mainly in the wild, not in captivity. Interestingly, although these species belong to the same territories, in the wild they avoid each other.
The mules are some of the hybrids are more common that cannot be found in nature, because they are bred through a reciprocal process. Are the offspring of a horse and a donkey female. They are smaller than horses and have a fur thicker. Due to the difference in the number of chromosomes for each species, the mule can not reproduce and are extremely difficult to obtain.
9. Cat of the savanna
For all lovers of dogs and cats all over the world. The cat of the savanna are compared often with the dogs for their loyalty and intelligence. They tend to follow their owners into the house and can be trained like dogs. The cat of the savanna lives in nature and is the offspring of a domestic cat and an african wild cat.
10. Bed (hybrid)
These tiny creatures look like tiny camels, furry beds. They are a hybrid resulting from a male camel and a llama female. The beds hybrid are very rare in nature, so some scientists use artificial insemination to create their first offspring. Interestingly, the reason for that was reproduced for the first time in 1998 was to create an animal that could produce the most amount of wool with the flame.
11. Geep hybrid
This little ball of cuteness is a geep, also known as shoat, is a rare cross between a sheep and a goat. Despite the fact that they have many similarities in their constitution, are two different species, and once they reproduce, their offspring are usually born dead. There was only 2 cases in the entire world, in which he was born a descent living, but were sterile due to the intermediate number of chromosomes they had.
12. A Dzo or Zho
Originated in Mongolia and Tibet, the dzo or zho is a hybrid between domestic cattle and yak. Given that the dzos are products of the phenomenon of heterosis, they tend to be stronger than their parents, are larger in size and are more fertile. In addition, they tend to produce greater quantities of milk and meat, in comparison with the livestock and normal yaks.
This hybrid is, in reality, the result of the cross between a jaguar male and a female lion. It was created unintentionally; their parents used to co-exist in the same zoo and they became friends inseperables. This jaglión now lives with her parents in the Wildlife Sanctuary at Bear Creek in Ontario, Canada.
