As Earth has encountered many different changes - a warming planet, environmental erosion, and loss of species - animals are trying to adapt. And one way they do that is through crossbreeding.
How does crossbreeding work? It's the strengthening of the genes of one animal by breeding with a stronger mate of another animal. Sometimes, these strange animal mating partners are a result of nature, and other times, they're a human-made match. While these crazy animal crossbreeds may look beautiful, there is one thing many of these exotic animal hybrids suffer from. Many crossbreed animals are born sterile.
Some exotic crossbreeds are created because of human intervention and methods of selective breeding. Crossbreeding can only occur with animals that belong to the same families or subfamilies. Only one particular type of crossed animals, such as the geep (a goat-sheep mix), are from entirely different classes. These kinds of animals are not genetic hybrids but instead referred to as genetic chimeras. Amazing right?
