love is having a shoulder to rest ones head on.

we quite often see 2 zebras like this.
can someone please tell me what they are doing exactly. Is it a mating couple? Are they just resting their head or does this mean something particular ?
thx

I think it's more keeping an eye out for danger, watching both ways, and being friendly.

I was told by a guide in Tanzania that they do it for resting their heads.

We saw this zebra mare with a stallion in close attendance on the H10 some way before Nkumbi in Sept. Anyone else seen one with such overgrown hooves and any idea if it is laminitis ?
She was really battling to walk and lay down quite often.

This zebra provided us with some humour. He kept on moving his uppper lip which resulted in a smile, showing his large teeth. At one stage his lip was shivering which was very amusing. However, hard as we tried, we just could not manage to capture his smile (cheezy) on film. After zooming in, we saw the reason for this funny behaviour, a tick/gogga on his nose :lol:

We have also seen this behavior before, and I must say it is adorable. Lokks like there was a bee on his nose.

We went to Imfolozi in november and came across 2 different zebra with what looked like predator wounds. Both animals seemed to be healthy and apart from possible infection in the first one I am sure they both will survive.
I know this is not SAN parks but still interesting.

Zebra 1 looks as though the wound may have been caused by fighting too. What do others think ?

Zebra make such nice subjects with their stripes. They seem to want to have their pics taken , rather like Gemsbok and Kudu
