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

I'm not gonna be getting one, but I can dream right? :lol:

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.

I know...I just saw a couple on craigslist:lol: and wondered what they were like

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.
