Asked in Donkeys and Mules
How do mules reproduce?
Mules are unable to reproduce, this is caused by the uneven amount of chromosomal pairs of the horse and the donkey. Horses only have 64 chromosomes, Donkeys have 62 chromosomes, therefore, the offspring (the Mule) has 63 chromosomes. All males Mules are sterile, but there is a 5% chance that a female mule (a Hinny) will be able to reproduce.
