The Biggest Animals Kingdom | Zebra | Zebra in the English language dates back to 1600, the Italian zebra, perhaps from the Portuguese, in turn, said that Congolese (as in the Oxford Dictionary of English they are called) is. Zebras in the Old World horses in recent years has developed 4,000,000. Grevy's zebras (and maybe even mountain zebras) are with donkeys and asses on a separate line from other lines zebras. This means that both striped horses has developed more than once, or that the common ancestor of zebra striped zebras and donkeys were kept and only the strip. The animals had stocky zebra-like bodies and short, narrow, donkey-like skull. The Hagerman horse is also called the American zebra or Hagerman zebra. Grevy's zebra is much higher, while the mountain zebra is something smallerIt thought that animals were zebras white with black stripes, and some zebras have white bellies.

The "zebra crossing" is the name of black and white stripes of zebras. A variety of hypotheses considered responsible for the development of distinctive stripes of zebras were proposed. The first vertical stripes can contribute to the zebra skin on the grass. According Another hypothesis is that since the animals in the herd of zebra, the stripes may help to confuse predators, a number of zebras standing or moving may appear closely together as a large animal, making it difficult for the lion to choose any single zebra to attack. Like horses, zebras walk, trot, trot and canter. When chased, a zebra will zig-zag back and forth, making it difficult for thieves. When cornered the zebra rebel and kick or bite her attacker. Zebras have excellent eyesight. Zebras also have night vision, although not advanced as most of his enemies.

Zebras have excellent hearing, and tend to have larger, rounder ears than horses. How to turn the horses and other hoofed animals, a zebra, their ears almost all directions. In addition to vision and hearing, zebras have an acute sense of smell and taste. Like most members of the family of horses, zebras are very social. Mountain zebras and Plains zebras live in groups known as "harem", consisting of one stallion with up to six mares and their foals. Unlike the other zebra species, Grevy's zebras do not have permanent social bonds. A group of these zebras rarely stays together for more than a few months. Like the other two species, zebra, zebras are organizing a bachelor males in groups. Like horses, zebras sleep standing up, and only sleep when neighbors are around to warn them of predators. Grevy's zebras make mule-like Bray. The zebra ears signify its mood. If the zebra is tense in a calm and friendly, or upright ears. 

If a predator is discovered or detected, is a zebra skin (or screaming) out loud. Zebras feed almost exclusively on grass, but occasionally can eat shrubs, herbs, twigs, leaves and bark. Zebras females mature earlier than men, and a mare may have her foal in the first three years of age. horses, zebras are able to walk, walk and suckle shortly after they are born. A zebra foal is brown and white instead of black and white birth. Plains and Mountain zebra foals are protected by their mothers as well as the head stallion and other mares in their group. Grevy's zebra foals have only their mother as a protector regularly because, as mentioned above, Grevy's zebra groups often dissolve after a few months. Attempts have been made to train zebras to assemble since they have greater resistance to diseases of the African horse. In England, the zoological collector Lord Rothschild frequently used zebras to drag a car. In 1907, Rosendo Ribeiro used, the first doctor in Nairobi, Kenya, a riding zebra for house calls. aptain Horace Hayes, in comparison with "Points of the Horse" (circa 1893), the usefulness of different species of zebra. 

Zebras were and are hunted for their fur and meat. The Cape mountain zebra was hunted to near extinction, with fewer than 100 people from 1930 years. Both Mountain zebra subspecies are currently protected in national parks, but still vulnerable. The Grevy's zebra is also endangered. Plains zebras are much more numerous and have a healthy population. Zebras are saying the theme of African folk tales, which, as they have their stripes. Zebras are also used as mascots and symbols of products and companies, especially Zebra Technologies and Fruit Stripes gum. Zebras are presented on the crest of Botswana.
