    Descended from domesticated stock that descended from wild animals. An animal that was born and raised without human contact is wild or feral, it means the same thing.

    I own two zedonks, and oh my goodness are they a handful! Granted that we got them when they were around 5 and basically untouched, they are extremely untrusting when you're in their pen, but if you are standing outside of it one is very friendly and loves to be scratched all over and the other is slowly becoming friendly.
    It's absolutely nothing like owning a horse, though. They are way more unpredictable and hard to train. Their stubbornness is about 50 donkeys put together.

    The difference in a wild animal and a feral animal is not that simple. Feral animals come from animals that were once domesticated. Domestication is a process that takes many generations of culling to remove wild traits and instincts. The wild animal may be tame as a juvenile, but he will revert to his wild tendencies as he matures.

    All of the pets we have now started out as wild animals. Through selective breeding and human interaction they became domesticated and easily tameable. So it's not terrible or cruel to own a zebra. Give it a few decades and they'll be domesticated too. All it takes is one person to want it and it will happen. So yes they may be wild but so were horses at one point. What would we all be doing now if someone hadn't been all 'hmm I'm going to make that wild horse my pet and have it do tons of work and take me where I want to go'? Zebra's may not be house pets and that one advertized will probably be a little sh*t but that doesn't mean they all will be or that they'll always be wild animals. There are numerous zebra farms all over the place so it's already on it's way to domestication. I'd totally get one if I had the room or time for another equine.

    I got my Shire mare from a group of horses set to be imported to Africa (it fell through), there was a Zebra in the mix. Honestly, some guy in Africa, was going to import a Zebra, from America... don't they have those in Africa??? She too is now for sale, she's a total brat, but she made some of the funniest faces!

    Bahaha import a zebra from America? I agree, that makes little sense. Unless it's very hard to get a zebra in Africa because of restrictions from reserves

    I think it's funny on the ad how often they said "he smells wonderful". That's great, but is he going to try to kill me when he matures and realizes he's wild and likes the lady zebras as well?
