Introduction
AKA @Macroevo (on Twitter), I'm the creator and director of the biological information site Macroevolution.net and the author of Handbook of Avian Hybrids of the World, Mammalian Hybrids, The Hybrid Hypothesis, On the Origins of New Forms of Life: A New Theory, The Department, Online Biology Dictionary, Suffix Prefix Dictionary, Root Word Dictionary and Gilgamesh: A Reconstruction. I've also authored numerous articles in peer-reviewed journals, on the Macroevolution.net website, and in the popular press. As a hobby, I'm also creating an annotated, illustrated online version of Charles Darwin's autobiography and writing biographies of various other prominent biologists. I also taught genetics, biology, and mathematics at the University of Georgia. If you like, you can have some fun and read my dissertation. :)

Member of Phi Beta Kappa, proposer of stabilization theory and the chimp-pig hybrid theory of human origins.

A dog-cow hybrid? That's impossible. Right? No? Maybe?

A Twitter follower's question: "But do cabbits [cat-rabbit hybrids] eat carrots or fish?"

My response: "Most enjoy a nice mouse and tuna casserole with plenty of lettuce and carrots, and perhaps a light, re-ingestible pellet topping."
Hybrids between domestic cat and rabbit (known as "cabbits" or "racats") are discussed in this article.

The pig is waiting for you...
Human origins may be traceable to a hybrid cross. At least such a claim accounts for a large amount of physiological and anatomical data.
