I bet some of you thought I meant something like a cross between a rabbit and a cat (ew), didn't you? :p

For centuries animals have bred, both naturally and in breeding farms, et cetera which ended in a Hybrid. Quite a few Hybrids can't breed as they have an odd number of chromosomes, so that's a same, and they are generally rare. :)

Here are some pictures/descriptions of some. Some of them seem odd, and some familiar! :D Click the images to go to the Wikipedia article if you want to know more.

Hinny
Hybrid of: Male Horse + Female Donkey = Hinny

In fact wasa sculpture by artist Patricia Piccinini, from her 2003 exhibition "We Are Family." Many people thought it was a true picture when it started circulating the Internet.


And some creative/funny pics, all fake of course...

This is all very interesting, but i hope people realise the hybrids are always from human interruption (except with dogs) and it is very rare for them not to have a variety of disabilities. Im sure the one's non-retarded enough to photograph are nice though...

I find it weird how the opening post casually mentioned that they have an odd number of chromosones.

Woah, the Liger is HUGE! :D

It's not a real hybrid, but in the old days, people believed Norwegian Forest Cats were a cross of regular cats and bobcats. :) They were mythical cats for several hundred years. Before genetics. ;)

The males are absolutely HUGE.
And they are one of the oldest cat breeds.

I have two females. This is the dad of one of them. He's a monster! :D
He's as big as a medium sized dog!

Actually if you look up the Grolar (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grizzly%E2%80%93polar_bear_hybrid) bear, it was NOT a result of human interruption, but a natural occurence

But I think that even if it wasn't caused by humans they still have lots of genetic problems... It's not just something cute to look at, personally I find it creepy. :(
