Zebra is the common name for three extant species of animals in the equine family Equidae.
It is named for the protective markings on its body.
No animal has a more distinctive coat than the zebra.
The stripes around a zebra's body are the same as human fingerprints - no two heads are exactly alike.
Zebras are herbivores.
In addition to grass, shrubs, twigs, leaves and even bark are their food.
A more adaptable digestive system allows zebras to survive in low-nutrient conditions, making them superior to other herbivores.
The stripes on the zebra's body are its most important feature, which does not just play a decorative role.
1. The stripes can affect the vision of other animals and make the zebra's body appear large, so that it can deter enemies.
2.The zebra stripes can dazzle the enemy and make them dizzy from being shaken in a melee, thus enabling them to escape.
Since cows and sheep can be tamed by humans, why can't zebras?
1. Zebras are very ferocious
In the African grassland gallop fight, zebra naturally has its special survival advantage.
Daily at any time to fight for their lives, zebra a pair of hind hooves kick power is huge, even the king of the grasslands lions are also scared.
There have been many cases of zebras killing lions.
2. Zebras are extremely vulnerable to fright
Wild zebras grow in the crisis-ridden African grasslands, so they have developed a very suspicious.
And even some nervous character, hear a little movement, will be scared to run, how to drag can not drag, such a zebra, who dare not guarantee their own safety.
3. Although zebras are also horses, their body structure is closer to that of a donkey, so they can't run fast at all.
4. Zebras are familially inherited highly myopic, running and running will hit the tree.
5. The efficiency of riding a zebra is very low.
In the past, people domesticated horses, mainly for travel and transportation of goods, often need to use a team of horses.
In a well-domesticated team of horses, as long as the head horse stops, the horses behind will naturally stop.
The head horse runs.
All the horses in the team will follow.
But zebras do not have this sense of following the leader.
When they are not facing external threats, a group of zebras only loosely share a grassland, without a so-called "lead horse" and without fixed community relations.
