London: A zoo in Mexico has welcomed a "Zonkey", which is a rare cross between a zebra and a donkey.

The hybrid animal named Khumba was born at Reynosa zoo, in the north-eastern state of Tamaulipas, reported.
Khumba`s mother is a zebra called Rayas, whilst the father is a dwarf, blue-eyed albino donkey named Ignacio.
The zoo officials said that Khumba is a rare case in the animal world, as chromosomes of a zebra and a donkey are not compatible.
