According to the label, the zebra x donkey hybrid “Adam” was born in Florida on 13th June 1998. Unfortunately the label does not state what species of zebra the parent is.

      Judging by the leg patterns/stripes on the legs it looks as though it was a Damara or Burchell's Zebra. I've heard of a zeekdonk before so is this another zeedonk?

      Nice photo!

      Yes, it is a zeedonk.

      I suspect that the zebra parent was most likely a plains zebra too.

      Where is 'Groombridge Place'?

      I've given up trying to guess which species the Zebra parent was in zebroid hybrids..;)

      Groombridge Place is in Kent not far from Tunbridge Wells.

      It is a pleasant place to visit with attractive gardens and lovely views; there are a few animals too including birds-of-prey which feature in flying displays. However, unless you’re especially interested in zebra hybrids the animal collection is not very exciting.

      (Incidentally, Arthur Conan-Doyle allegedly used Groombridge Place, renamed Birlstone Manor, as the setting for his Sherlock Holmes Story “Valley of Fear”.)
    There are no comments to display.
