Crossbreeding is quite common these days, whether we realize it or not. Probably the most common use for crossbreeding is for pet dogs and cats. Perhaps there aren’t a whole lot of new species of cats and dogs being created, but that is ultimately how we have such a variety in our modern world. Produce is also aided greatly by mixing two strains to create a new one, creating a much wider array of available fruits and vegetables. Though crossbreeding only works if the two animals are of the same family, the results can be quite astonishing.
