Cat​

What if I need to surrender a Bengal or hybrid cat? The W ildcat Sanctuary is a sanctuary for wild and hybrid cats. Due to the overwhelming number of calls we receive, we can no longer accommodate domestic Bengals. Only F1 foundation cats will be considered for permanent sanctuary.

Coywolf​
Coywolf​

The coywolf is a coyote-wolf hybrid found throughout eastern North America, from Canada all the way down to Virginia. A 2010 study argued that eastern coyotes should more appropriately be termed "coywolves" to reflect their hybrid origin.

Dzo​
Dzo​

Dzo is the Tibetan word for the male offspring of a cross between domestic cattle and yak. The dzo is a common livestock animal in Tibet, with large herds of yak and mixed hybrids sprinkled throughout the Tibetan mountain regions.

Jaglion​
Jaglion​

Panthera hybrids are typically given a portmanteau name, varying by which species is the dam (female parent) and which is the sire (male parent). For example, a hybrid between a male lion and tigress is a liger, because the lion is the male and the tigress is the female parent.

Leopon​
Leopon​

A leopon / ˈ l ɛ p ən / is a hybrid resulting from the crossing of a male leopard with a lioness. The head of the animal is similar to that of a lion while the rest of the body carries similarities to leopards. These hybrids are produced in captivity and are unlikely to occur in the wild.

Liger​
Liger​

The liger is only one such concoction, by the way. There are also tigons, which is a cross between a female lion and a male tiger. (Ligers are technically the opposite.) Then you have leopons (leopard plus lion), jaguleps (jaguar plus leopard), and savannah cats (domestic cat plus serval).

Mulard​
Mulard​

The mulard (or moulard) is a domestic duck hybrid of Pekin and muscovy ducks. The mulard, therefore, is not just a hybrid between different species, but between different genera: the muscovy is (Cairina moschata) whereas the Pekin (Anas platyrhynchos domestica) is descended from the mallard (Anas platyrhynchos).

Pizzly​
Pizzly​

Since the 2006 discovery placed the hybrid into the spotlight, the media have referred to this animal with several portmanteau names, such as pizzly, grolar bear, and polizzly, but there is no consensus on the use of any one of these terms.

Savannah cat​
Savannah cat​

Savannah Cats are a spotted domestic cat breed started in the 1980's. Developed to give the impression of grandeur and dignity of an wild cat with a cheetah type appearance, expressive eyes highlighted by dark tear stains, vibrant coat colors, solid contrasting black spots, huge sonar-like ears and long legs.

Sheep–Goat ​Hybrid​
Sheep–Goat ​Hybrid​

A sheep–goat hybrid (sometimes called a geep or shoat in popular media) is the hybrid offspring of a sheep and a goat. Although sheep and goats seem similar and can be mated, they belong to different genera in the subfamily Caprinae of the family Bovidae.

Tigon​
Tigon​

A tigon (/ ˈ t aɪ ɡ ən /) or tiglon (/ ˈ t aɪ ɡ l ən /) is a hybrid cross between a male tiger (Panthera tigris) and a female lion (Panthera leo). Thus, it has parents with the same genus but of different species.

Wholphin​
Wholphin​

A wholphin or wolphin is an extremely rare hybrid born from a mating of a female common bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) with a male false killer whale (Pseudorca crassidens). The name implies a hybrid of whale and dolphin, although taxonomically, both are within the "oceanic dolphin" family, which is within the "toothed whale" suborder.

Zebroid​
Zebroid​

Equid (horse, donkey, zebra) hybrids are well known and some are bred commercially. The generic term for a zebra hybrid with a horse, pony, donkey or ass is a zebroid. The generic term for a hybrid of a zebra with any type of donkey or ass is a zebrass.

ŻUbroń​
ŻUbroń​

Żubroń (/ ˈ zj uː b r ən /; Polish: Żubroń [ˈʐubrɔɲ]) is a hybrid of domestic cattle and wisent. The wisent (żubr in Polish) is the European bison; hence, the żubroń is analogous to the American beefalo.
