Remember when you were a kid and you’d draw your favourite animal but, instead of straight-up depicting a lion or something, you’d hurl some wings on it and maybe a couple of flippers ?
You’d end up with some sort of reject Pokemon but that’s not the phase. The phase was science!
Hybrids that you never believed could actually happen. But what’s this? There are hybrids? Whhaaaaaat ?!
A hearty cross between cows and buffalo, the Beefalo does less ecological damage to the Earth than its cow cousins, but Beefalo breeding has led to preservation problems with Bison. Imagine being named after the meat you induce … it’s a cruel world.
A mad scientist attained one of these bad boys in the crazy 90 s when he mixed a male camel with a lady lama in a test tube or something, thinking that it would induce lucrative fur. Only five have graced the planet. Other planets on the other hand … even less. Like none.
Crosses between Grey Wolves and Coyotes are rare since there’s so many millions of years evolution dividing them BUT it does happen. Smaller than a wolf, bigger than a coyote, the aptly named Coywolf has characteristics of both. And is just a little bit cute.
When a wild yak sneaks into a farm and has it off with a cow, this is what happens. They’re pretty much exclusive toTibet and Mongolia and are famed for their bounty or milk and meat.They are larger and stronger than both cows and yaks, and are used as brutes of onu. Why aren’t there more of them around the world? They seem fairly handy…
5. Grolar Bear
Pretty much only in zoos, the grolar bear may only look like a dirty polar bear but it isn’t! It’s mixy-mix of a brown bear and a polar bear. There have been confirmed sightings in the wild, but they usually get shot by Alaskans…
Basically a mule but the other way around. They’remale horses and a female donkey. They’re smaller than mules so no one really considers the phase in them. That’s why they hardly ever happen.
When you get a male jaguar and a female lion to have a little cat lovin’, you get the coolest animals in the world. Jaglions are startlingly rare, however, and only really happen at wildlife sanctuaries.
Napoleon Dynamite’s favourite creature does really exist but, sadly, doesn’t have magical powers. Cross betweenmale lions and female tigers, there’s a( very cool) myth that ligers never stop growing in their lifetime. This is, of course, a myth and they just grow freakishly large … and then stop. They are the largest cats and merely exist in captivity.
When a male leopard is luck enough to get his objective away with a lady lion, the leopon is bear. It’s more or less impossible for this to happen in ze wild and, so far, has been bred in captivity.
… it’s a duck.
Well, amallard and a muscovy duck were made to have kiddiwinks that are bred purely for feeing purposes. They are unable to have kids, themselves.
Narwhals and Belugas have a common ancestry so it was only a matter of time until they get freaky. They are crazy-rare, however. But sightings have been increasing in the northern Atlantic with experts pointing fingers at ol’ climate change.
12. Savannah Cat
THIS IS A DOMESTICATED ANIMAL, Y’ALL.
It’s a cross between aServal, a kind of wild cat that lives in Africa, and a operate of the mill House Cat. They’re pretty darn big and they behave a lot like puppies, weirdly. They wag their tails, play games but, on the downside, are mega pricey.
Not a Liger! This one is a cross between a male tiger and a female lion. They’re smaller than or equal in sizing to their mother species and that’s really about it. Oddly, tions and ligers can breed which leads to riling names liketitigons( ding dong) and liligers.
So the name is a make use of blending dolphin and whale but the wolphin has no whale in it. In fact, it is part false killer whale( which is actually in the dolphin family) and bottlenose dolphin. They’re very rare but do occur in the wild. There is only one in captivity.
Aa zebra and any other equine can make one of these bad-boys. These have been around for donkeys years, even being mentioned in Darwin’s works. They tend to look like their non-zebra parent but with them cray cray stripes. Zebroids are common-ish in the wild, however they are very hard to tame.
