Why are hybrid animals like mules unable to produce offspring?

    When horses and donkeys mate, they are close enough in species that they are able to reproduce.  Their offspring, however, is sterile.  This is due to a difference in number of chromosomes.  When the mule tries to reproduce the chromosomes can not pair up properly to create viable embryos.
