Brave naturalistic researchers have worked on birds and pets, and even engaged in wildlife. Their offspring is the fruit of the quaint passions of various kinds. What wonderful animals settled on this list?
Famous HybridsAt the end of the 19th century, hunters who practiced the use of birds of prey began to think about breeding them in captivity. Shortly before World War II, the Master of the Order of German Falconers Rein Waller received offspring from peregrine falcons, and his followers - artificially bred Saker Falcons. But what if not every creature in a pair? In the 1970s, Irish ornithologists Stevens and Morris, having crossed a peregrine falcon and a Saker Falcon, received the first hybrid bird. Subsequent experiments brought even more entertaining results.
PerlinFeathered creation, born of the union of the Peregrine Falcon and Merlin, is famous for its hunting abilities. This falcon, very popular among English aristocrats, helps in catching small birds in open spaces. Its main prey is partridges, larks and pigeons.The name “perlin” is derived from the addition of the first two syllables of the parent breeds: peregrina (peregrine falcon) and merlin (merlin).

Eagle hybridThe recent experiment of the Petersburg falconer Sergei Shchegolkov was followed by the ornithologists of the entire planet. Having crossed the burial eagle and the golden eagle, he received an elegant bird of prey. As long as a golden eagle, the tail helps to maneuver well, and a wide swing ensures high speed. The hybrid has passed the test in the winter hunting and is now used for catching hares.
Mixture of bullfinch and canaryIn 1961, an article appeared in the German magazine Deutsche Gefliigel Zeitung, describing a captive chick and bullfinch chick in captivity. The calf's lower half was rusty red in color, and its wings and tail were brown. Foreign experience was able to repeat only once. As the scientist Boris Manteuifel proved, crossing tropical birds and forest dwellers is not easy.

Banduki can easily become the decoration of any home.They inherit a greenish back and a yellow breast from a bright canary, and an orange mask around a beak from a goldfinch. Unfortunately, it is not yet possible to obtain offspring from such hybrids.

WolftailIn 1998, a study by the American Veterinary Association showed that more than 300 thousand volkozobak live in the United States. The combination of two related species is very productive. Thus arose the Alaskan Malamutes and Siberian Huskies. Even German shepherds have in their pedigree and wolves and dogs. The only disadvantage of such a genetic intervention is the unpredictable behavioral and physical characteristics of a toothy cub.

Camel llamaOn January 14, 1998, the world learned about a new inhabitant of the Asian barnyard - the camelum. Scientists have tried their best, carrying out artificial insemination of animals that are different not only in size but also in their habitat.

LigreThe animals, born of a mother tigress and a lion father, are considered the largest cats in the world. The height of the ligature of Hercules living in Miami is about 3 meters. Although these animals rarely produce offspring, in 2004 two little liglets were born in the Novosibirsk Zoo. By the way, tigrolvs, which are the result of crossing a lioness and a tiger, on the contrary, are distinguished by their diminutiveness.

PisleyIn 2006, Jim Martell, who was hunting in the Canadian territory of the Arctic, shot a marvelous beast. A corpse identification in the laboratory of British Columbia confirmed that this grizzly and polar bear cub was born without human intervention.Hybrid bear cubs were born earlier - for example, in the zoo of the German Halle back in 1874.

Killer beeThe experiment on the crossing of European bees with species from Africa is known for its sad results. 26 families born in the laboratory of the University of Rio Clara, broke free and for many years terrorized the whole district. 150 people and hundreds of animals became victims of bites. Even flamethrowers did not save monstrous hybrids.
It is difficult to list all the creations created by an inquisitive mind and hard work. But this creature knows both old and young.
