    1.ZEBROIDS
    A zebroid (also zedonk, zorse, zebra mule, and zebrule) is the offspring of any cross between a zebra with female animal from the equidae family.A zorse is the result of crossbreeding a horse and a zebra. A zonkey is the result of crossbreeding a donkey with a zebra. The Zony is the result of crossbreeding a pony to a zebra. All these three are called zebroids.

    2.LIGER
    This amazing cross bread between male lion and female tiger result to hybrid a Liger.they are the biggest of all the big cats, growing to almost the lion and tigers combined size.

    3.WHOLPHIN
    This amazing hybrid is a result of mating of a female bottlenose dolphin with a male False Killer Whale.These remarkable animals have been known to occur in the wild, but so far there are only two living examples of wholphins in captivity, and they both call the Sea Life Park in Hawaii home.

    4.CAMA
    A cama is a hybrid between a male dromedary camel and a female llama, produced via artificial insemination.due to the huge difference in sizes of the animals which disallow natural breeding. A Cama usually has the short ears and long tails of a camel but the cloven hooves of a llama. Also most noticeably is the absence of the hump.

    5.LEPON
    A Leopon is the result of breeding a male leopard and a female lion. The head of the animal is similar to that of a lion while the rest of the bodies carries similarities to leopards. The most successful breeding programme was at the Koshien Hanshin Park in Nishinomiya City, Japan.

    6. Toast of Botswana
    It is the hybrid offspring of a sheep and a goat. Although sheep and goats seem similar and can be mated, they belong to different genera in the subfamily Caprinae of the family Bovidae. Sheep belong to the genus Ovis and have 54 chromosomes, while goats belong to the genus Capra and have 60 chromosomes.

    8.Cheetoh
    The Cheetoh is a breed of domestic cat, derived from crossings between specific Bengal cat and Ocicat bloodlines. Being a new breed, it is rare. Because it is partly derived from the Bengal, a domestic–wild hybrid cat, the Cheetoh is itself a hybrid.

    9.Hybrid Pheasant
    The Golden Phesant has commonly been crossed with the similar Lady Amherst’s Pheasant. The result is a hybrid with distinguished colors from its parents.

    10.Zorse
    A zorse is a cross between a zebra stallion and a horse mare. The zorse takes the color or dominant color gene of the mare and the zebra sire gives it stripes

    @Mad Indian : Explain how this is happening man ? How can inter-species breeding take place ? Elucidate the advantages and disadvantages ? How or why is say the lion persuaded to mate with a tiger, which is a different species and hence should not be subject to the the lion's carnal desire ?

    Carnal desire between two different species? :hmm: I think I have heard this before! But I wasn't aware it could result in reproduction! That's unbelievable! Probably explains why some folks remind you of dogs and donkeys!

    I was under the impression that this type of breeding takes place almost exclusively in captivity and via artificial insemination. If a tiger and a lion were to meet in the wild, 99 out of 100 times the tiger would not try to mate with it but would simply kill the lion (a tiger is much larger and more powerful than a lion).

    Dude, I got this from the net.

    Source: Is a "liger" a created by artificial insemination or do animal cross breed species on their own? - Yahoo! Answers

    Also

    Source: www.liger.org

    Also
    Source: www.knowyourcat.info

    So it's probably not artificial insemination.

    Species in modern biology is defined as the group of animals capable of inter-breeding.
    So By dfn, when we say a species of Lion, we mean that Lions which give birth to lions capable of reproduction.

    So when there is breeding between species, offsprings may or may not be produced based on the genetic differences and similiarities between the species in question. But the catch is that they are infertile. Most of the products of interspecies breeding will result in defective organisms, for the lack of some genetic material in them compared to the animals of same species birth!

    Also, note that both Lions and Tigers belong to the same genus Leo, though they are seperate species.

    And there is no such thing as carnal desire in animal kingdom. Pleasure and other such things associated with sex are exclusive to very small group of animals like Chimps, Humans, Dolphins(not sure) . Lions/tigers reproduce when the time is right for them to reproduce , "the time" being controlled by the periodically changing levels of hormones in them. Also, pheromones play a very important role in bringing them together. So when "the time" is right, and the male/female lion/tiger and tiger/lion found themselves without partners, they mate with the ones closest to their species:hmm:

    I am not an expert but this is what I could think of regarding this issue...:)

    Funny after all those years of camel & donkey sex Pakis yet to produce a hybrid. Oh wait the Talibunnies would qualify?

    Interesting! And great thread! I remember reading a few years ago that humans and chimpanzees may not be able to inter-breed because they have different number of chromosomes. Apparently that's not true!

    Humanzee - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


    Very interesting indeed! So will a human-chimp hybrid mean the death of religion (or at least of the Abrahamic faiths) as we know it? After all, if humans are so utterly different and separate from other animals, how can an ape-human hybrid be explained?

    Were a Humanzee to be born, would the teachings of the Abrahamic faith apply to him/her? Was he born in Sin? If he mated with another chimp, the resultant offspring would be a 2/3rd Chimp & 1/3rd human. Would the story of Adam and Eve mean anything to him/her? What would be the intellectual ability of these offspring?

    I'm shocked to see such little investigation and research into this by the scientific community. The knowledge we gain from these experiments could change the entire basis of organization of human society, culture, ethics etc!

    The detached stretch above gives the answer why these experiments didn't were continued.

    Religious prejudices against any possibility to approach human specie with other monkeys as our most near relatives than that God, which may shake this beliefs
