Panda? Anteater? Both? I Don’t Know Anymore
Hybridization is the breeding of two different species, animals or plants, that results in a novel offspring. It has been practiced since 1716 even up to this day. Some of the most popular hybrids include a Tigon (male tiger and female lion), Beefalo (buffalo and cow), and an Hebra (male horse and female zebra).
Usually, this hybridization happens between two animal families with close lineages, such as a zebra and a horse. Can you even imagine if they are two completely different animals? Say, a panda and an anteater? Well, not really a hybridization, but just look at this anteater’s leg. You can’t tell me that it’s not a panda.
