  • History:

    Dissimilar from many other mammal species, adult male zebras actually play an important part in childcare, as stallions will fiercely protect their infants from threatening predators. Oddly, this behavior is only seen in plains and mountain zebras, as Grevy’s Zebra herds often disband a few months after coming together to mate. Want some friends to keep this friendly foal company?
