You may have heard Bangal animals, a combination of horse animals
female and male donkeys. But did you know that there are many more mixed animals or hybrid animals that live in this world. Although hybrid animals do not exist in the wild but have emerged due to human hands, we can now see the most unique hybrid animals in the world such as zongkeys. liger or savanah cat.
List of 10 most unique hybrid animals in the world is really real and amazing. What will happen in the future with advances in genetic engineering and cloning? Only time determines.
Continue reading about the 10 most unique hybrid animals in the world until it's finished. We are sure you will be amazed by it.
1. Bangal Cat
Bangal or Blacan cat is the third breed from the cross between an American shorthair cat and an Asian leopard cat. This cat is from California, United States. Although classified as a jungle cat, but the Bengal race, including animals that are much-loved and used as a pet because of their unique shape.
Bengal cats have a long body size with strong body muscles. It has large, strong bones and thick, dense, smooth hair. In the process of its maintenance, this cat needs special care on its fur by gently rubbing it using a soft brush.
Bengal cat population is not too much so the price is still too high. This cat is sold at a price of around 10 - 40 million rupiah.
Although there are rumors about the existence of Liger in the wild, as far as we know, this animal is only in captivity where this animal is deliberately bred. This animal grows with a very large and fast body and one of the largest cats in the world. The liger named Hercules is the largest live cat in the world and weighs more than 410 kg.
Tigon is a hybrid animal from the crossbreeding of male tigers and female lions. Tigon belongs to Kingdom Animalia Phylum Chordata (lambing), Order Carnivora (meat eater) Family Felidae, Genus Panthera (Panther). The name Tigon is a combination of tiger and lion species, panthera tigris x panthera leo.
Cama are hybrid animals that are the result of cross-breeding between male arab camels and female llamas produced through artificial insemination at the Camel Reproduction Center in Dubai. The first cama was born on January 14, 1998 in Dubai.
The rare combination of photos above is Jahzara and the Tsunami born in Ontario, Canada, Bear Creek Wildlife Sanctuary.
Jaglions are hybrids that are the result of cross-breeding between one of the four species of tiger, lion, jaguars and leopards in captivity. This animal is not to be released in the wild because males are usually infertile.
Mitochondrial genome research has revealed that wild hybrids have also existed since ancient times. The mitochondrial genome of snow leopards and lions is more similar to each other than other panthera species which show that at some point in their history their female ancestors were male ancestors of modern snow leopards and female ancestors of modern lions mated with male ancestors of modern snow leopards .
Geep is a hybrid breed between sheep and goats. These sheep and goats that look similar can be mated. This animal belongs to a different genus in the Caprinae subfamily of the Bovidae family. Sheep belong to the genus Ovis which has 54 chromosomes. While goats are included in the genus Capra which has 60 chromosomes. Descendants of the pair of sheep and goats are generally born dead. Although goat and sheep grazing is widespread, hybrid animals known as Geep are very rare.
7. Glorar Bear
Glorar Bear is a type of hybrid animal that was reported to have been found on Banks Island, Northwest Territories, Canada in April 2006. This bear was shot by US hunters and then this animal caught public attention because of its white fur with several brown spots. Hean also has long nails and a hunchbacked back characteristic of polar bears.
A DNA investigation confirmed that Geep was a hybrid animal and this was the first documented case in the wild. although it has been known before that this type of hybrid animal may exist because several other hybrid polar bears have been found.
Coywolf is an informal term for canid hybrids derived from coyotes, eastern wolves and gray wolves. All members of the genus Canis are genetically closely related because their chromosome number 78 so they can interbreed.
One genetic study shows that the two species are genetically different relatively recently. Genome studies show that almost all North American gray wolf populations have some degree of mixing with coyotes following geographic clones with the lowest levels occurring in Alaska and the highest in Ontario and Quebec and Canada.
Zebroids are hybrid breeds that cross between zebras and horses. In many cases, the Sire is a zebra stallion descended from the mother of the Donkey and Zebra called Donkra or Zebra Hinny and descended from stallions and zebras called the hebra.
Zebroids have been bred since the 19th century when Charles Darwin recorded several zebra hybrids in his works.
10. Savanah Cat
Savanah Cat is a hybrid cat breed which is the result of a cross from a serval stray cat from Africa with a domestic cat Siamese, bengal and want Egypt. Savanah Cat has been named by Guinness World Records as the longest cat race in the world with a length of about 44 cm.
The Sabana cat is the most popular cat in the United States with prices reaching $ 4,000 - $ 35,000 or around 126 - 343 million rupiah.
