... like Zebra - the zebra is a descendend of the equus. Some
characteristics are those of primitve pony-races: the erect mane and a
stocky body built. Old races like the Tarpan or the mongolian wild horse
show the odd zebra stripes on their legs.

While the grevy´s zebra is donkey-like in its sounds, the Plains-Zebra
makes neither donkey nore horse like sounds, but a so-called and named-after

can be kept and fed like horses. They breed easily in zoos and can reach up
to thrity years in captivity, much more, than in the wild.
Zebras life only on the african continent. The grevy´s zebra is found in
North-Est-Africa (Ethyopia, Somalia, Sudan). Mountain-Zebras live in the
mountainous areas of South-West-Africa, plains zebras are generally found
south of the equator (from Kenia, South Sudan, Angola rith down to South
Africa). Zebras live in herdes. Grevy´s zebras prefer small herdes, which roam
in a rather big enclosed area. Mountain zebras live in bigger herdes, yet
not like the plains zebras who have herdes with more than a hundred animals
in them. Plains zebras live in big herdes, who come together during the
rainy season with other herds to form huges masses of a couple of thousands
The biggest predetor the zebra faces is the lion. Therefore lions can always
be found in the near surroundings of zebra herdes.
Different Zebra species never cross in the wilderness. At the zoo could succeed.
The descendants are then infertile.
In South Africa
once lived zebras almost without any stripes, yet they became extinct in the
