Your Daily Squee: A Baby Zonkey Was Just Born In Italy!
You guys, I’d like you to meet Ippo the baby zonkey, which is exactly what it sounds like: a donkey/zebra hybrid. Ippo was born a few days ago at an animal reserve in Florence, Italy, after her zebra dad climbed over a fence to get busy with her donkey mom (ahh, romance!). Remember when Gillian Jacobs told us that her personal theme song is “Dominick the Italian Christmas Donkey”? Pretty sure it’s time for an updated version: “Ippo the Italian Summer Zonkey.” Ippo is currently the only zonkey in Italy, which seems like something to celebrate. Salute! [ABC News]
