Tigon is an interspecific hybrid produced by a cross between male Panthera tigris (tiger) and female Panthera leo (lion). They can have both spots from the mother (lions carry genes for spots) and stripes from the father (tiger).

Zonkey is an interspecific hybrid produced by a cross between a male Equus quagga (zebra) and female Equus asinus (donkey). Zonkeys resemble their donkey parent (mother) physically than their zebra parent (father) in appearance. Zonkeys are basically striped donkeys.
