Zebras are found only on one continent of our planet – Africa. They live by families. One family consists of 4-10 individuals. At the head of each family group there is one stallion – the leader. It can only become mature male at the age of five or six years.
Family alliances with zebras are for life. The cause of the breakup of the family can only be the death of the leader or the expulsion of his younger challenger.
