If wishes were zorses

Sometimes fact is stranger than fiction. Peter is reading *Game of Thrones*, and the constant mention of “zorses” piqued our curiosity. And what do you know, **[a zorse](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zebroid#Types) is the offspring of a male zebra and a female horse.**

Turns out there is lots to [zebroid](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zebroid) nomenclature. Depending on the species of the sire and dame, you’ll either get a zonkey, a zorse, a zony [and so on](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zebroid#Types).

On the search for more remix animals, imagine my excitement upon discovering the honest-to-God existence of Napoleon Dynamite’s famed creature, **the [liger](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liger).**
