When you think about crossbreeding animals, it almost sounds like a fantasy. As if it was something you’ve only heard about in books or movies or on a TV show.
However, some of them are absolutely real. Look at this majestic leopon. It’s a lion and leopard mixed together. They were only ever bred in captivity but some photos exist.
Here is the rare the prizzly or golar bear. That’s right, it’s a cross between a polar and grizzly bear. They were bred out of desperation due to global warming.
Look at this cute little animal. Known as the geep, this is what happens when you get the offspring of both a goat and a sheep. It is just tremendously adorable.
This might be the rarest animal on this list. It is the narluga. It’s tough to say but it is a cross between a beluga whale and a narwhal. Seems pretty obvious once you look at it.
This animal is known as the dzo. They are actually prized in places like Tibet and Mongolia for the milk and meat. It is a cross between a cow and a yak.
These hybrids are kind of rare but ones in the water are even more so. Crossing a female bottlenose dolphin with a male false killer whale created this wholphin.
The jaglion might not be the most creative name out there but it does explain things. A jaguar and a female lion were crossed to make this beautiful creature.
There’s no overly creative name for this majestic creature. The hybrid iguana was made by simply crossing male marine iguanas with female land iguanas.
This is a hinny. It is actually the opposite of a mule. That’s because it was created by breeding a male donkey with a female horse, while mules are done the other way around.
The names of these are kind of fun, right? This is known as a zonkey. As you can guess, it is a cross between a zebra and a donkey. They were originally bred to transport items.
Ever heard of gamebirds? They’re crossbreeds of various birds. We’re talking ducks, fowls, chickens, quails, pheasants, peacocks, and more. They come out looking cool.
Sometimes, it’s just cool to see these animals and guess what they’re a mix of. This one is the cama, which is a cross between a llama and a camel and it’s adorable.
If this reminds you of a bison, then you’re pretty close. To get here, they crossed a wild wisent (which is a European bison) with a domesticated cattle. That made this zubron.
This is a mean pig and it was bred for its meat. Known as the iron age pig, it is a cross between a pig and a wild boar. It looks like an ancient swine from prehistoric pieces of art.
Just take a look at this glorious little guy. The Savannah cat is a cross between a domestic house cat and an African serval. It literally looks like a wildcat in your home.
This may not look like a crossbreed at first glance. However, the coywolf is actually a combination of a male wolf and a female coyote. They are fertile and able to survive in the wild.
Not a buffalo. This is actually a beefalo. Yes, you read that right. They were made by crossing a North American bison with a domesticated beef cattle. These are more valuable in terms of meat production.
You’ve probably heard of ligers but tigons? They’re a different story. A cross between a male tiger and female lion created these awesome creatures and we love it.
You probably know about these guys from watching “Napoleon Dynamite.” The movie shined a light on the liger, which is a lion and tiger mix. Some can reach over 900 pounds.
