Rare Baby Donkra Born in China

This little guy is the offspring of a female zebra and a male donkey, born in Haicang Zoo in China. His unusual genetic make-up has graced him with a donkey-shaped body and zebra-like head, with just a smattering of black and white stripes in his mostly brown hide. There were difficulties during birth, but zoo officials say the donkra is thriving and already weighs in at over 30kg. To watch a video of the cutest little crossbreed in China, check out the report on BBC News. Link

I thought these were just called "Mules" or at best "zebra mules". But I guess that term doesn't sound playful enough, we had to come up with "donkra", "zebroid", "zebrule", "zorse" and so on. Anyway, I think I'll stick with mule or equine hybrid

Are they all that rare? There's an animal park near us that has several of them. (They didn't breed them, they got them that way.) Here's an adult donkra:
