Is it possible that there's a pregnant zebra out there at this time of year? Saw one at the S waterhole yesterday and would swear it was *very* pregnant. There were bumps that looked like head or knees or feet kind of things.

Thanks,

hi

As far as I know is the reason, why Zebra´s lying the head on each other back is, Protecktion. because now the can see what happens in front of them and behind them. as a nice effeckt, the bound of Zebras is getting stronger because they have to trust and work with each other.

Best regards malealea

I just love Zebra and taking pics of them. They are so handsome and the patterns and manes they have are really attractive

Hi,

I see on the list of mammals of Karoo National Park, that both Burchells and Moutain zebra are found there.

Would there be the possibility that they interbreed creating genetically useless hybrids?

Thanks

Yes, they could, and yes, they would be unreproductive!

truth or myth?!

a lot of guides tell you that zebras and gnus often graze in one herds because gnus have poor eyesight but great hearing abilities while zebras have good eyes but poor ears...has that ever been scientifically proven?

thanks

Ice, no that's pure myth.
It's mainly due to protection with numbers! During the great migration between Kenya and Tanzania you have millions of gnus in enormous herds with a few thousand zebras mixed with them. The safety of a single is close to guaranteed for the zebras!

Working with horses which are so much like zebra's I can tell you there is nothing wrong with their hearing. In fact, I would say their hearing is better than their eye sight, often hearing things and then looking. The interesting fact is they have to lift their heads to see close, and keep their heads low to see far.

We had a strange experience in February near Satara. We came across a small foal alone and when we stopped, the foal trotted towards us and rubbed itself against the car [which was white]. The foal had obviously lost its mother but was so persistent in rubbing against the car that we couldn't move without risk of hurting it. We didn't want to touch it, in case its mother did turn up, but in the end we had to push it away from the car. It galloped after us for two hundred yards or more before giving up!! Was it the fact that the car was white that convinced this poor little animal that we were its mother.
