Florence, July 22 - A Florence animal reserve said
on Monday that a rare mix between a zebra and donkey born
several days earlier is in good health.
The zonkey named Ippo is the foal of an endangered donkey
breed from Amiata and a zebra that was adopted by the center
after it was confiscated from a failing zoo.
Many of the animals adopted by the Florence animal reserve
run by the Aglietti family have been seized by police from
private zoos throughout Italy, including a camel, parrots and a
racehorse that was destined to be butchered.
"Ippo is the only one of his kind in Italy," Serena
Aglietti said.
Reportedly there are other zonkeys in Germany, China and
Georgia.
Ippo was not bread intentionally, but is the product of the
zebra's determination after he climbed a protective fence to get
to the donkey, the reserve managers said.
