What! Hybrid Animals?

Yes! You read well, Hybrid Animals! The world in which you and I live in has such thing as a Hybrid animal. When you and I thought that this immense “blue globe” could not get any stranger, abnormal, and full of skepticism, Hybrid animals pop up. This might be a little too off your understanding, but don’t panic, these animals are not as extraordinary as my first to lines make it feel. In fact, Hybrid animals are a type of living creature created by the animals themselves and of course God’s hand. These animals have also been created thanks to artificial insemination (process of fertilizing the female egg by introducing spermatozoid into reproductive track). Anyways, back to the topic, Hybrid animals are rare and you might have a small chance to spot one.

But if you really want to see a Zony (zebra-Pony) or a Wolphin (Bottlenose dolphin- False killer whale) they are easy to find. To do so, you might want to go and search them up online, or you can visit them in Walter Rothschild Zoological Museum, Tring, England, and Sea Life Park, Hawaii, respectively. Hybrid animals come in large variety, Grolar, Pizzly, Liger, Tigon, Wolf Dog, Iron Age Pig, Zebroid, Cama, Leopon, etc..! Hybrid animals are extraordinary and rare. Think about the names of the different animals above and try to get an idea of how can these animals look, reproduce, act, and even smell, touch, or hear. Above you will see a YouTube video of pictures showing you the different type of Hybrid animals.

  1. I think it is a really fascinating the fact that two species can actually reproduce and form a completely new specie if they have similar chromosomes. I wonder if they hybrids are actually better than the 2 animals or they have some genetical problems due to the mix of the species.

  2. This could be the fight for extinction. Although extinction is never positive, by creating these hybrid animals and creating new species with already existing species, it could oppose the rate of extinct animals with new species.

  3. The problem with this is once the or if the hybrids are released into the wild they will loose their advantages of adaptation and just slowly reach extinction.
