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

I finally figured out the only reason to be alive is to enjoy it.
