The world was graced with another zonkey this week.

Khumba is a rare cross between a zebra and a donkey. He was born April 21 at Reynosa Zoo in Northern Mexico, reports ABC News. Zebra and donkey chromosomes generally are not compatible, but in this case Raya, the mother zebra, and Ignacio, a dwarf, blue-eyed, donkey made the magic happen. This is especially impressive when you see the relative sizes of the mom and pop in the video below.

Watch the newest little guy in action:

 

Khumba’s not the first zonkey around. Last year Ippo was born in Italy. Keep them coming, please!
