Do zebras make good pets

I was just wondering if they make good pets.. Or are they stubborn, mean, etc...?

I'm not going to be getting one, but I can dream right?

I have heard that they are vicious! Ha, like super aggressive. I have a friend who had a Zonkey (zebra donkey) who got their horse pregnant..haha!

Honestly, I'm not a fan of exotic pets period. Zebras have a temperament that is not "pet" friendly.

Nope- lol. I have heard they are downright mean (even compared to other wild animals). I think even the Zorse (zebra horse hybrid) is more than most can handle. They sure are pretty though!

No...keep in mind that zebras are not domesticated.

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

Zebras are wild animals. In my opinion, NO wild animal should ever be a pet. I don't care if it was raised in captivity, it's still a wild animal, not domesicated.

haha I have a feeling it wouldnt be like racing stripes if that's what you're hoping ;) I've often wondered that too........ can you imagine the looks you would get riding in a show on a ZEBRA!

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.
