SEEKOR binatang hasil kacukkan kuda belang dan keldai dilahirkan di Crimea dan ia dikenali sebagai zonkey (zebra-donkey).

Keadaan zonkey yang diberi nama Telegraph itu membawa kelainan apabila kepalanya sama seperti keldai tetapi mempunyai belang di kaki serta separuh badan seperti ibunya, kuda belang.

A hybrid (R) of zebra and a donkey stands near his mother at the Taigan zoo park outside Simferopol on August 5, 2014. A Crimean zoo has welcomed into its collection a "zebroid" or "zonkey" after a zebra gave birth following befriending a donkey. Named Telegraph by the keepers at the Taigan zoo park, his head and body resemble that of a donkey and are a solid beige colour, with his legs marked by black zebra stripes. Born last week, "Telegraph is very popular with visitors" who can watch him romping around with his mother, said director Oleg Zubkov. Crosses between zebras and other members of the equine family are not unheard of, although it is more unusual that the zebra is the mother. However allowing such breeding to occur is frowned upon in the zoo community. AFP PHOTO/ YURIY LASHOVYURI LASHOV/AFP/Getty Images

Jurucakap zoo tempatan berkata, walaupun kacukan itu jarang berlaku namun kali ini seekor zonkey yang luar biasa dan menarik telah dilahirkan.

"Kacukan ini tidak dirancang kerana kuda belang betina tersebut dipindah ke kandang keldai selepas kelihatan tidak sihat dan enggan mengawan.

"Tetapi ketika berada di kandang keldai, kuda belang tersebut telah mengawan dan melahirkan Telegraph yang sihat," ujarnya.

Berikutan itu, zoo tersebut kini berjaya menarik perhatian umum yang ingin menyaksikan Telegraph walaupun ibu bapanya tidak sepopular itu.
