How come humans didn’t tame zebras and ride them across the savanna?
Horses and zebras look like basically the same animal, so…what’s up with that?
The answer is considerably longer than the question, but it touches on the distinction between domestication and taming, the differences between zebras and horses socially (notably in their herd/family structure).
Zebra’s also kick and bite! They also have a ducking reflex which is why it’s too hard to catch one with a lasso.
Zebra’s also do not herd. They will not follow such as the horses do where the lead horse has it’s followers…the mother and the young followed by another parental horse and so on.
Zebra’s have no society. They hang out in groups for survival reasons.
