I definitely agree Zebra are one of my favorite animals to photograph!

An umbilical hernia can be seen quite clearly on the one Zebra.
Seen in Kruger in Feb this year.

Mike, in our TR this is what Jock had to say on the condition.

ps Ask Jock please, when you speak .......would the Zebbie with the hernia be in pain?and would he/she be in trouble later on?


Hi Dotty, Elsa has asked me to come and answer your questions and since the horses in hospital seem to be doing well, I have some time before my midnight treatments need to be done.

Many animals get an umbilical hernia which is where the umbilicus enters the abdominal cavity. This happens when the umbilicus dies off and the surrounding abdonimal wall does not close correctly. However, this zebra appears to have the lump further forward so this hernia could have been created by a weakness in the wall or a tear. The only danger with a hernia is if intestines loop into the hernia and then become intrapped. I think if the zebra was in any pain his/her condition would not be so good as animals in pain will often not do as well. Of course the above statement is in MHO and if anyone else has something to say on the matter, I would love to hear it.

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,

Hello and welcome, cybercrone!

It is HIGHLY unlikely that zebra would show pregnancy at this time of year!

Also, herbivores don't show "protuberances" when carrying, including humans! :D

Zebras are always fat, for a variety of reasons, so I think the "bumps" could be old injuries, warts, skin infestations etc....

(Unless they were moving! :? )

Enjoy your trip! :thumbs_up:

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
