How are you all doing today? I am exhausted but doing well. My novel, Of One Tongue is at the publishers for (hopefully) the final review. I am anticipating it to come out by the end of the month! Yeah! So lots of last minute details to attend to, lol!
Thus this blog is going to be mostly pictures….but oh what fascinating pictures! I researched more into hybrid animals and here is what I found:
Beefalo; a cross between a buffalo and domestic cattle. They are fertile and can produce viable offspring.
Zubrons; a cross between the European bison and domestic cattle. They can produce viable offspring.
The sheep-goat; These two animals are from different genuses. Yet they can produce viable offspring.
Wolf dog hybrids: These animals can easily produce viable offspring.
Dingo dog hybrids: These also easily produce offspring.
Fox dog hybrids: these also can produce viable offspring.
Ligers; A cross between a male lion and female tiger. Sometimes they can produce viable offspring.
Tigons: a cross between a male tiger and female lion. Can sometimes produce viable offspring.
Jungle cat/domestic cat hybrid. They can produce viable offspring.
Wild cat/domestic cat hybrid. Also can sometimes produce viable offspring.
Leapon: Leopard lion hybrid. Unknown if they produced viable offspring.
Cama: A cross between a camel and a llama. Artificially inseminated due to difference in size.
Wolphin: a cross between a false killer whale and a bottle nose dolphin. As you can see by the picture, they can produce viable offspring.
Narluga: A cross between a narwhal and beluga whale. Unknown if they can produce viable offspring. The Beluga whale is on the top left, narwhale on the top right. The narluga is on the bottom
Grolar bears: A cross between a Grizzly bear and a polar bear. They can produce viable offspring.
Sun/sloth bear hybrid. Their fertility is unknown.
Why is it so important that I included whether or not the hybrids are fertile and can produce viable offspring? Because in evolutionary terms, that is what makes a species separate—when two animals cannot produce viable offspring. Many of these animals are considered separate species and even listed in separate genuses. A big problem for secular scientists. But is is not a problem at all for creation scientists. All of these animals’ ancestors were created with genetic diversity. And I hope that if you noticed nothing else, you have noticed that all of these hybrids are within their created Kind. “Through time the processes of natural selection, mutation, and other mechanisms have altered that original information (decreased or degenerated) to give us even more variation within a kind. Great variety can be observed in the offspring of animals of the same kind, just as the same cake recipe can be used to make many different cakes with various flavors and colors. Hybrids have a portion of the same genetic information as their parents but combined in a unique way to give a very unique looking animal. What an amazing diversity of life God has created for us to enjoy!”
Take care and God bless,
