I had a girlfriend once who liked both zebras and dolphins and wondered what an aquatic zebra would look like. This is what I came up with. I call it a "zolphin"

I tried to envision more than just a head stuck on a body; but rather a "crossbreed" between the two. Like if a zebra slept with a dolphin and had a baby. More than just a dolphin with zebra stripes, it's an aquatic zebra that evolved for swimming. Not bad for my first try at a completely imaginary creature. This is one of those purely imaginative concepts I wish I could come up with more often, it's hard work but a lot of fun to do. This may become a series someday of fantasy creatures that combine two very different animals.
