Born recently in Italy, this is a zonkey, a cross between a donkey and a zebra.

A zonkey is a cross between a zebra and a donkey, also referred to as a zebonkey (or zebronkey), zebrinny, zebrula, zebrass, zedonk (or zeedonk) or zebadonk. And Italy welcomed its first zonkey, named Ippo, last month, born to a proud female donkey and male zebra in a Florence nature reserve. However, it was an unplanned pregnancy, sources report.  Apparently, the zebra jumped a fence to get to his donkey love. (So much for that form of birth control!”) Ippo has stripped black-white legs, a brown middle and a donkey-shaped face. So unplanned can be quite grand!
