Why do you often find Zebra and Wildebeest together?

Zebras and Wildebeest group together in open savanna environments with high chances of predation. This grouping strategy reduces the risk of being preyed on, because larger groups decrease each individual’s chance of being hunted, and predators are more easily seen in open areas.
Wildebeest can also listen in on the alarm calls of other species, and by doing so can reduce their risk.

Zebra and wildebeest are able to co-exist in harmony because, despite the fact that they eat the same type of grass, they each eats a different part of the plant.

wildflowergirl :clap: Good effort :thumbs_up:

Wildebeest prefer short grass whilst Zebra have long front teeth that can sheer off the long grass.

I read through some of the previous pages and really enjoyed some of the questions. However, there were questions that were just beyond me, but I learned SO much!

What happened to this quiz for people that need easy questions? :|

Hehe Wildflowergirl, I got such a fright reading that line I forgot to breath for a few seconds! I read the questions... I don't ask them :shock:

even by thinking of questions to ask them - we learn something. and it's part of the fun. and if you make a mistake (we all do) we learn from it. :D Don't worry. :D And welcome to the quiz forum. :D



Now for the question....

I'm taking a wild guess here as I am not sure if this is actually the pride that climbs trees.... but is it maybe the Southern Pride? :hmz:
