A hybrid is the product of mating between individuals of different species or strains. The word is most common when talking about plants and animals. Mules are hybrids. The female parent is a horse and the male parent is a donkey. The result, a mule, is sterile.

By extension, other things may be called hybrids. Some cars are hybrids. They have a mixture of two different kinds of motors, electric and gasoline.
