Top 10 Strangest Hybrid Animals


Although hybrid animals rarely exist in the wild, sometimes animals from different yet closely related species mate with one another, giving birth to some truly interesting new breeds. We should also mention that most hybrid animals in existence today were bred whilst in captivity.

Ever wondered what it would be like if tigers mated with lions? How about if domestic horses mated with actual zebras? The results, as you may imagine, not only look strange to the naked eye, but are also infertile most of the time, so the only real way to witness such a hybrid would be within a controlled environment. Without further ado, here are the ten strangest hybrid animals who ever existed.


10Blood Parrots

Created in Taiwan in 1986, Blood parrots resulted from the breeding of Green or Gold Servum fish with Red Devil fish. Although quite popular at the time, this particular hybrid fish is known for having many deformities, which is why the breeding of this hybrid breed is frowned upon. Among its deformities, the blood parrot has an unusually small mouth, impeding its ability to properly feed itself.
