An unusual feature of the family Equidae is their remarkable ability to produce hybrids among virtually all the member species, regardless of significant chromosomal differences. The best known of these, due to human interest in their production since antiquity, are the mules (male donkey x female horse) and hinny (male horse x female donkey). Here, we report a case of interspecies hybrid of E.asinus (donkey) and E. heminous khur (Asiatic wild ass popularly known as Ghuldkhur).
