An Unusual Zebra-Horse Crossing

Zebra-HorseMeet Eclyse, an amazing zebra-horse crossing! She is a major attraction at a safari park at Schloss Holte Stukenbrock, near the German border with Holland.

The one-year-old horse was the accidental product of a holiday romance when her mother, Eclipse, was taken from her German safari park home to a ranch in Italy where she mated with Eclyse's father Ulysses.

For while most zebra-horse crossbreeds sport stripes across their entire body, Eclyse only has two such patches, on its face and rear. So she's walking proof of how a child inherits genes from both parents.

To entertain your curiosity, RC featured a zoo in China painted a white horse to the zebra which they claimed as an original African zebra and charged with visitors for a photography-taking fee.
