What is a Zonkey?

A Zonkey – You’ve got to admit, he’s pretty cute

Ok, we knew you were going to ask about the Zonkey eventually. According to our friends at Wikipedia:

“A zonkey is a cross between a zebra and a donkey. Donkeys are closely related to zebras and both animals belong to the horse family. Zonkeys are very rare”

So why did we choose the name Zonkey, because as Wikipedia says:

“Zonkey” is not the technically correct name for such a cross. The most commonly accepted terms are zebonkey (or zebronkey), zebrinny, zebrula, zebrass, and zedonk (or zeedonk). Another name that is sometimes used is “zebadonk”.

We may just provide web design services, and not actually keep or look after these animals, but, Zonkey as a name just sounds good doesn’t it. Could you really see us being called Zebadonk Solutions though? I mean, come on, seriously now…
