There are so many unique animal species in our world, many of which have not even been discovered yet. Animals from different but genetically closely related species do occasionally mate and produce offsprings, and the result is a hybrid: a distinct creature that shares genetic traits of both parent species, and is many times stronger or larger than the originals.
Some half-breeds are well known, like the mule which is a horse and donkey mix. But since hybrids are usually infertile, most are much more rare, like the ones you are about to see below. Some may look fake, but we assure you they’re in fact completely real.(via:boredomtherapy,nytimes)
