Mom’s ears, dad’s stripes

Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

A ze­donk, a rare cross be­tween a fe­male don­key and a male ze­bra, is at­tract­ing at­ten­tion at the Ch­es­ta­tee Wildlife Pre­serve in Dahlonega, Ga., af­ter be­ing born last week. She has black stripes promi­nently dis­played on her legs and face. The foal has a ze­bra’s in­stincts, sit­ting up in­stead of ly­ing on her side, as if she’s stay­ing alert for preda­tors, pre­serve founder C.W. Wa­then says.
