Hybrid of a guinea pig and rabbit?

Some animals can cross breed, but I don't think guinea pigs and rabbits can. The obvious example is a horse and a donkey. Also, I think there have been rare occasions of cows gettings pregnant by male deers and a lama with a camel.

wholphin = whale + dolphin (specifically a false killer whale and a bottlenose dolphin)

Idiots, don't they know that Pseudorca crassidens (a.k.a the False Killer Whale) is a member of the dolphin family, not the whale family. Hell, even the Orca is a member of the dolphin family.

I've never seen such a bunch of sceptics in my life! Prepare to be amazed non-believers, as I now reveal for the first time on the internet, definitive proof of the existance of the "Gabbit":

I have to add my two sense but I think that Pigs may fly... before we see a Gabbit/Guinbit... Lets see if that magic Pig has wings under that hat!

Obviously he would only poop the special magic sparkly poop anyway, brandibrandi.

Cute. But I'd call it a Grabbit. Sounds funnier.

Interesting...

Hamsters, gerbils, mice, rats & guinea pigs all at the moment belong to the Rodentia order. Hamsters, gerbils, mice and rats belong to the Muridae family. (Some sources place hamsters and gerbils in a seperate family.) Guinea pigs belong to the Cavidaeii family.

Rabbits belong to the Lagomorph order, not rodentia.

Horses and donkeys both belong to the family Equidae and genus Equus.
MULE

Dolphins, whales and porpoises all belong to the order Cetacea. But not even all dolphins belong to the same family.
WHOLPHIN

A lion and a housecat belong to the genus Felis. But a tiger belongs to the genus panthernae.
LIGER


Conclusion: Our classification system is flawed and I just wasted a good hour of my time. If there did exist a hybrid of rabbit and cavy, I'd bet it'd look more like this:

Did anybody read the article about a zebra and donkey mating? The offspring has stripes on its legs and ears!

What a thread.. I laughed, I cried, I learned about interspecies breading and even saw for my own eyes, what a grabbit looks like. :D

I not only learned lots from this thread, but the interspecies page I clicked on gave me some really, umm, educational information as well :s Like "it's mean to hide a kitten in a puppies butt".. :s now THAT is something I didn't expect to read about tonight. LOL

Hey there. The animal you are thinking of is called a Cabbit. (Cavy+Rabbit). Rabbits CANNOT impregnate guinea pigs and vise versa. Cabbits can only be created in a lab. And even in a lab, some of them can look like beavers, some like donkeys, and some just like plain rabbits. This is because the scientist are taking different genes and mixing it with a completely different animal so it comes out different every time. They are real, but these are very, very, rare, because it it’s hard to find a lab/scientist who does that. The guinea pig could just have a disabled baby, or the picture is completely fake, because it is scientifically impossible for rabbits and guinea pigs to breed naturally. It is also a terrible idea to keep them in thee same cage because rabbits often bully and harm the guinea pigs, and rabbits pass a disease to the poor things.
