A Kent visitor attraction has an unlikely new star - a cross between a zebra and a donkey.
Adam has been befriended by Peaches the miniature donkey
Adam the zeedonk can be seen at Groombridge Place Gardens near Tunbridge Wells - and is thought to be one of only two in the UK.
The animal has the legs of a zebra and the body of a donkey and has been brought to Kent from the USA, where he was bred.
He was unveiled on Monday - one day before April Fool's Day - to avoid any suspicion he might not be the genuine article.
The crossbreed of the zebra and donkey is possible because the two creatures are so closely related and are both part of the equine genus.
But the zeedonks themselves cannot reproduce as they are born sterile.
Zeedonks can live for up to 30 years
Adam's new owners think he is only the second zeedonk in the country - the other is at Colchester Zoo in Essex.
He was brought to Groombridge Gardens on Saturday and can be seen by visitors when the gates re-open for the summer season on Tuesday.
Kind but stubborn
He lives in the centre's Enchanted Forest area and has already made a friend in the shape of Peaches the miniature donkey.
The tourist attraction's director Roly Rickcord said: "He has got a kind eye, but a rather stubborn streak you would expect to find in a mule.
"But he has got a friend in Peaches who we think brings out the best in him."
Zeedonks can live for up to 30 years - so with Adam being only three years old he stands to be around for a few years to come.
