I assume this has nothing to do with Rooi Kappie and her Granma...............what big teeth you've got!!!! :big_eyes:

I thought it had something to do with dominance...............but got this from a web page

Zebras have their own “smile”—a bared-teeth grimace that is a greeting and helps prevent aggression.


Who's aggression is prevented I don't know!!!!

The head nodding I thought had something to do with parasites in their nose.............but don't know if that could have anything to do with their baring their teeth!!!

(The answer to this one , Sioban
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.

Ten whale species is correct, Siobain. :clap: :clap: You're IT.

Which means you can compose a new Q and answer the old one that Ndloti is requesting. :thumbs_up:
