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!

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.
