essentially, i need to know what would happen if a centaur and a human were to have a child. what the child would look like, what their internal anatomy would be like, etc.

currently, my idea is that the child would be a tall human with larger lungs, but something about it doesn't quite seem right so i need some more ideas.

    $\begingroup$ This will depend on their genetic compatibility. So we can assume that you've assumed that as a fact. It's conceivable (no pun intended) there could be a range of different. from more or less centaur to more or less human, and all sorts inbetween. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ i've already seen those posts but none of them really answered my question, which is what the child of a centaur and human would be like. they focused on the centaurs alone $\endgroup$ Sep 15, 2018 at 17:40
