Citations for zedonk
A zedonk, an unusual cross between a donkey and a zebra, is attracting attention at the Chestatee Wildlife Preserve in Dahlonega after being born there about a week ago.
"Lettered Creatures" is both abecedary and bestiary, from "Anteater" to "Zedonk" (my dictionary offers the felicitous alternative "zonkey").
Origin of zedonk
This portmanteau is a combination of ze(bra) + donk(ey). It came to English in the 1970s.
