A rare and unusual cross-breed makes its debut at a Mexican zoo.

A "zonkey", its a cross between a zebra and a donkey and it was born at the Reynosa zoo earlier this week.

The parents of the animal made daily trips across the zoo to see one another leading the female zebra to, eventually, get pregnant.

The zoo says the case is so rare because zebra and donkey chromosomes are not compatible.
