And why you should never pat a zebra
Absolutely fascinating, I don't think I knew any of this before. It's also reminded me to finally order a copy of Guilty Pigs. I'm planning on giving it to my husband for Christmas, but I may have to borrow it afterwards...
Worth the wait. I wonder if zebras could be selectively bred for chill mood and, like with Arctic foxes, docility would be accompanied by physical changes (e.g. loss of stripes) that would wreck the whole process.

...then...how? Surely the paired zebra see the one along side it as a rival?
