Two zebra stallions playfight

Zebras are one of the most distinctively patterned mammals on earth. Their unique black and white striping has made them the subject of art and stories for centuries. They are beautiful to watch, especially when they gather in a herd and blend together in one of nature's most splendid optical illusions. These young males are beautiful as they posture and push each other around, establishing dominance and social position. It's all friendly enough and there seems to be no intent to injure. Much like horses, zebras have a complex and important social structure within the herd. These behaviours are crucial to the way the herd relationships are managed. Grooming each other and biting at the manes are also important behaviours that assist with social bonding.
