Social Patterns of African Plains Zebras
Seventh Grade Biology
As many as 17 zebras (mostly females) are in one herd with one dominant stallion.
An hierarchy of dominance is established by the female zebras.
Some people would call this hierarchy a “pecking order.” What animal do you think coined this phrase?
The dominant female and her foal run at the head of the herd, the other females follow in order of dominance.
The dominant stallion will guard and protect at the back of the herd.
