Zebra Stallions



"If you have a zebra stallion and have educated yourself before obtaining him or at least during ownership, chances are you don't own him just to have him as a pet. A zebra stallion really has no place as a family pet or riding animal unless extreme caution is always taken and the owner is willing to risk his and others' lives. A zebra stallion really should only be used as a breeding animal and for obvious safety reasons."

"The plains zebra is a highly social species forming harems with a single stallion, several mares and their recent offspring; there are also bachelor groups. Groups may come together to form herds. The animals keep watch for predators rather than attempting to hide; they bark or snort when they see a predator, and the harem stallion attacks predators such as dogs, hyenas and leopards to defend his harem."
