50-interesting-facts-about-zebras-that-you-didnt-know

These animals deserve to know them better and learn more about their features, lifestyle, and character. Take, for example, the fact that their stripes, like human fingerprints, are unique - could you imagine this?

 

What do we know about zebras other than they are striped?

 

The facts we at Bemorepanda have collected for you will tell you many exciting things about zebras, these great representatives of the African continent.

 

So, could you get acquainted: with zebras?

 

 

1. If you've ever wondered if there are crossbreeds between a horse and a zebra, the answer is yes. These are the so-called Zorses, descended from a zebra stallion and a mare. This hybrid was mentioned several times in George Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels. Like most hybrids, Zorses are sterile.

 

2. Zebras have a strong sense of community and are not afraid to stand up for their fellow herds. When one of them is injured due to a predator attack, other zebras immediately come to the rescue, circling the injured fellow and helping to drive away the attacker.

 

3. All zebras come from Africa, but depending on their species, they have their specific habitat. Plains zebras can be found in East and South Africa; Grevy's zebras live in Ethiopia and Kenya; mountain zebras usually live in South Africa, Namibia, and Angola.

 

4. Zebras can communicate both verbally and non-verbally. The most striking example of non-verbal communication is the expression of the muzzle, in particular, the ears. They prick their ears and stretch their muzzles forward when greeting each other. Feeling threatened, they press their ears to their heads.

 

5. Along with horses and donkeys, zebras are the only living animals with only one toe.

 

6. Fossils from China and Uzbekistan and a two-million-year-old fossil found in South Africa suggest that the ancestors of Grevy's zebras once roamed Africa and Eurasia.

 

7. There are albino zebras in Mount Kenya's forests, and their dark stripes are light.

 

 

8. Mountain zebras live on slopes and plateaus at an altitude of up to 2000 meters above sea level.

 

9. Zebras have a habit of rubbing against various objects and even rolling in mud. Rolling coats their fur with sand and earth, which helps zebras keep themselves clean by rubbing off dead skin and removing mites, biting insects, and pests. Zebras also help keep each other clean.

 

10. In 1882, the government of Ethiopia, then known as Abyssinia, sent a zebra as a gift to French President Jules Grevy. In the same year, the French naturalist Émile Ustale named this species of zebra "Grevy's zebra" in honor of the president.

 

11. Zebras have evolved the ability to sleep standing up, and they do it most of the time. If predators attack, they can immediately run away and not waste precious seconds getting up.

 

12. Zebras are herbivores. In particular, they feed on grass, leaves, and stems of shrubs. Chewing wears down their teeth, so these teeth continue to grow throughout their lives. When the dry season arrives, zebras go elsewhere in search of food; this is why most species are considered nomadic.

 

13. Although zebras are not very fast (they can run at about 64 km per hour), they are incredibly dynamic and rely on their agility and endurance to outwit faster predators. They can zigzag to confuse attackers and evade most predators.

 

14. Have you ever wondered why zebras have stripes? There are many reasons for this, but the most interesting is the phenomenon of disruptive (torn) coloration. To a lion, a herd of zebras does not look like a bunch of individual animals gathered together but rather like a vast camouflaged striped mass, which makes it difficult for a predator to choose a specific zebra to attack.

 

 

15. Zebras are not picky eaters. Instead of just chewing short grass, they eat a wide variety of herbs, leaves, and young trees. As a result, they can roam much further than many other species, often venturing into wooded areas. They are known as pioneer animals, preparing the plains for other herbivore species that require shorter, more nutritious grasses.

 

16. Grevy's zebras have a low calf survival rate. Habitat loss, competition for resources, and hunting by humans have reduced the species' population by 54% in 30 years. Grevy's zebras are listed in the Red Book of Threatened Species, the most comprehensive archive of data on the global conservation status of biological species.

 

17. Zebra stripes can make them unattractive to some smaller predators, such as blood-sucking horseflies, which can spread disease.

 

18. The dominant stallion in the herd guards the group and is the first to sense danger, uttering a high-pitched snort to warn his comrades. He then quickly takes a defensive position at the group's rear while the mare (usually the mother of the youngest foal) leads the rest of the herd away.

 

19. Zebras are among the mammals with the most extended gestation period. Females can carry cubs for 12 to 14 months.

 

20. Zebras are considered mature at 3 to 6 years, and their average lifespan is 25 years.

 

 

21. Despite belonging to the same family as horses and donkeys, the independent nature of zebras makes them impossible to tame. They panic easily and have a much more aggressive nature than horses. They are known for attacking people.

 

22. Just as no two people have the same fingerprints, no two zebras have the same stripes.

 

23. Zebras use bites and kicks to protect themselves.

 

24. Zebras have completely black skin under black and white fur.

 

25. Night vision of a zebra is about the same as that of an owl.

 

26. Zebras were the subject of rock art in South Africa, dating from 28,000 to 20,000 years ago.

 

27. Unfortunately, it is well known that humanity is responsible for the disturbance of the natural habitat of many species. Agriculture, grazing, hunting, and habitat loss are the leading life-threatening causes for plains zebras.

 

28. Plains zebras regularly travel from the Serengeti plains in Tanzania to Kenya in search of food and water. Their annual migration leaves them vulnerable to various dangers, including attacks from lions, hyenas, wild dogs, and crocodiles.

 

 

29. Grevy's zebras are fast learners: newborns can be seen running just an hour after birth.

 

30. Adult mountain zebras can be 116 to 150 cm tall and weigh 240 to 372 kg.

 

31. Plains zebras usually have a height of 1.1 to 1.5 m and weigh up to 350 kg.

 

32. All zebras are close to their mothers, but males also form strong bonds with their fathers.

 

33. Grevy's zebras often live in harmony with other herbivores - wildebeests, ostriches, and antelope - nibbling off-dry, hardened grass tips that other herbivores cannot digest.

 

34. Grevy's zebras spend 60% of their day eating. In the dry season, when food is scarce, the percentage increases to 80%.

 

35. Newborn foals only take six minutes to stand on their own.

 

36. Mountain zebras are considered crepuscular animals, primarily active in the early morning and late afternoon until sunset.

 

 

37. Today, three zebra species roam the Earth: Grevy's, plains, and mountain zebra.

 

38. Zebras are born with brown and white hair, but brown turns black with age.

 

39. Plains zebras have been recorded to cover the 500 km between Namibia and Botswana, the longest land migration of a mammal in Africa.

 

40. Grevy's zebras can go without water for almost a week, but if possible, they will drink every day.

 

41. The plains zebra is the official national animal of Botswana.

 

42. When it's cold, mountain zebras take refuge in forests or caves and warm themselves in the morning sun, heading for the slopes facing east.

 

43. The main predators attacking Grevy's zebras are lions, cheetahs, hyenas, hunting dogs, and leopards.

 

44. Hunting is the main reason for the decline in the number of Grevy's zebras in Ethiopia.

 

 

45. Plains zebras are the most common type of zebra.

 

46. At birth, foals weigh between 25 and 40 kg.

 

47. Each species of zebra has its general stripe pattern.

 

48. Mountain zebras are skilled climbers and have sharper hooves than other zebras and horses.

 

49. Unlike plains zebras and horses, Grevy's zebras do not form long-term bonds. The composition of their group can change hourly.

 

50. In total, Grevy's zebras have about 80 stripes.

50-touching-photos-of-mom-dogs-and-their-puppies

Becoming a mother - what could be better? And it doesn't matter what kind of "breed" it is - human or animal. Because no one canceled the maternal instinct, any mother will take care of her cub and protect him in every possible way.

 

A happy mother with children is probably the best thing in this world

 

Take, for example, dogs. During the first few weeks, mother dogs shower their newborns with undivided attention and care to create the most favorable living conditions.

 

Because puppies come into this world unable to see, hear, or walk, this early period is critical (it is estimated that they spend about 10% of their time eating and the other 90% sleeping) - it is their mother's job to satisfy everyone. Their needs range from nutrition to learning essential skills.

 

Over time, dog mothers continue to develop the independence of their babies without ceasing to patronize them. Therefore, we can safely say that these beautiful animals take their parental responsibilities seriously. And some mothers (in particular, from among the people) would do well to take an example from them. This Reddit user shared photos of their dogs becoming mothers.

 

1. Yesterday, our foster dog whelped. It's not quite what we expected...

 

2. The most reliable shelter

Erin Caribe, MD, medical director of Best Friends Animal Society, says that until weaning (when puppies switch from milk to solid food), babies get all their nutrition from their mother's milk. “Weaning naturally begins at 4-6 weeks of age when puppies begin to show interest in food,” says Dr. Catribe. “However, during this period, they should still have access to their mother’s milk as their transition to solid foods is gradual.”

 

The weaning process is essential for puppies: they learn behavior from their mother and their littermates. Important landmarks necessary for the separation of puppies must be carried out in the order of natural development. Otherwise, problems may arise as the puppies get older.

 

3. Our adopted dog Ellie became a mother of these motley babies yesterday.

 

4. The happiest mother

“Maternal social interaction with puppies is critical for at least seven weeks and ideally beyond. They learn to interact with each other - "to talk like a dog," says Dr. Katribe.

 

“For example, by biting during the game, the mother and littermates signal to the puppy that he has gone too far and end the game - this is how the puppy learns to suppress the desire to bite hard, realizing that this should not be done. This is an important skill for later life. Puppies also learn about body postures and vocalization types, key components of canine communication."

 

5. The perfect family photo

 

6. Lulu with her little boy

Caribe emphasized that puppies must remain in their biological family until at least seven weeks to achieve full psychological development through interaction with their mother and siblings. “Those who are previously separated from their mother and litter are more prone to behavioral disorders, including separation anxiety and increased fear response,” the doctor explained. "Puppies that stay with their mother and litter longer, especially if exposed to new experiences, tend to respond better to new experiences later in life and become better-adapted pets."

 

On the other hand, puppies bred specifically for purchase in pet stores are separated very young and then placed in a kennel with limited access to new sights, sounds, and experiences, and therefore their socialization suffers.

 

7. Our Luz gave birth to two princesses

 

8. I Managed to get this cute picture of my husky and her puppy snuggling up together (she became a first-time mom and gave birth to 8 adorable puppies)

“In a shelter setting, if mothers and puppies are physically housed in a shelter, we must balance the benefits of keeping them, along with the risks of infectious disease, which are higher in those settings. Ideally, mothers and litters are placed in foster homes rather than on-site, as this reduces the risk of disease and provides a much better environment for the important socialization of puppies through new experiences and people,” Caribe explained.

 

“If moms and puppies are to be placed in a shelter, starting the weaning process and separating puppies from mom earlier will allow them to be adopted sooner; then they can experience socialization in their foster home. And the shelter will be able to save the lives of other mothers and puppies who might not have had a chance without him.”

 

9. This happy mom Pibble and her cute puppies made my day

 

10. Mother and daughter

As cute as these photos look, we must remember that caring for puppies, moms, and litters is a lot of work. “Raising a mom and puppies, or raising an older puppy (until they are old enough to be spayed/neutered and adopted) at your local shelter can be a great way to get a feel for what it’s all about without the extra commitment,” Caribe said. . “Besides, sometimes we can't control when a puppy is separated. But we can take steps to socialize orphaned puppies as much as possible. "In these situations, it is important to seek the advice of an experienced trainer or behavioral veterinarian to have the best chance of achieving social development."

30-dogs-with-the-highest-intelligence-according-to-dog-breeders

Dogs are among the most intelligent animals on the planet. Scientists study their mental abilities, and scientific papers and books are written about them. Until now, new breeds are being bred, some of which are distinguished by highly advanced thinking.

 

Trainers named the most intelligent dog breeds

 

Of course, like people, dogs (even of the same breed) can be endowed with mental abilities differently; some are better, and others are worse.

 

However, trainers and breeders have long figured out which breeds, on average, will stand out in intelligence from their other relatives. According to researchers, we have selected the top 30 most intelligent dog breeds. Perhaps one of them will become your faithful friend and companion from the animal world for many years.

 

1. English Springer Spaniel

Another interesting breed from the list of dogs with the highest intelligence. His profession is to frighten away game under the hunter's shot.

 

The typical spaniel is friendly, well-trained, and ready to obey its owners. He is also maximally attached to his master, so that he can be recommended as a companion dog.

 

The breed was bred in the UK.

 

2. Golden Retriever

Another of the most famous types of hunting dogs is considered to be golden or golden retrievers.

 

The Golden Retriever was bred in the 19th century, and for many who are not involved in dog breeding, it remains a mystery how this sweet, immensely kind dog can be a hunting dog. But this is not unusual, as this versatile hunting dog is mainly used to bring in dead game, usually birds.

 

Since the dog must carry the prey without damaging it, it must grab it gently and carefully. Therefore, these beauties do not have any bloody inclinations and cannot be. But ingenuity and intelligence are present in total.

 

No wonder it is often used as a guide dog, rescuer, and a good companion.

 

The breed was bred in the UK.

 

3. Puli

An old breed of dog that you want to take to the barbershop. Although the "dreadlocks" even suit her.

 

But, as they say, they are greeted by clothes, but the mind escorts them. And the reason, breeders say, this breed does not hold!

 

The breed was bred in Hungary.

 

4. Doberman Pinscher

Another German breed comes from the 1890s. Due to a misunderstanding, many people consider her stupid and aggressive. Still, everything will depend on socialization and training, which will help to reveal the subtleties of the mind and quick wits.

 

In general, I would like to note that there are no “stupid” breeds of dogs; more often, this is a consequence of the stupidity of people and the wrong upbringing of a pet.

 

Remember, at least the outbred mongrels. Can someone who has encountered them at least once in their life say that this is a dog devoid of intelligence? On the contrary, he is a model of ingenuity and devotion. And dogs become biting, as you know, only from a dog's life.

 

The breed was bred in Germany.

 

5. German Shepherd

The fact that the German Shepherd should be at the top of the "smartest dogs" is evidenced by the fact that it was around this dog breed that the famous TV series "Commissioner Rex" was built.

 

And even though what is happening in the series in terms of the behavior of a cynological dog is mostly fiction, and the roles of Rex were played by more than five dogs (each was trained for specific actions), the main thing is different. Namely, the fact that the series' creators drew attention to this particular breed is not the least because of its mental abilities. It would be challenging to shoot a dog that does not want to obey commands in the frame.

 

The breed was bred in Germany.

 

6. Collie

Another dog breed is the film actor (remember the famous Lassie?). As with the shepherd dog, collies are extremely intelligent, but like many other dogs, they need to be handled, trained, allowed to run well, and cheered in every possible way.

 

Dogs of this breed are very mobile, able to understand the owner's emotions, and extremely kind.

 

The breed originated in Scotland and Northern England.

 

7. Poodle (standard or large)

The poodle can be seen from afar, and it is clear that he comes from France. But don't be fooled by its windy looks. Professional dog breeders love this extremely inquisitive breed for its learning opportunities. Dogs of this breed are easy and exciting to learn and do not require undue effort.

 

No wonder the poodle Artemon was introduced into the fairy tale by Alexei Tolstoy, "The Golden Key, or the Adventures of Pinocchio," because he gained fame as a magnificent circus capable of doing tricks that are beyond the control of almost any other breed of dog.

 

The breed was bred in France.

 

8. Dachshund

Color, muzzle, characteristic chest wheel... it is easy to determine that this dog is German. And like many "Germans," - she is smart and has a confident, strong character.

 

The breed was bred in Germany.

 

9. Bernese Mountain Dog

Another shepherd dog. Is it necessary to say that outstanding mental abilities distinguish the handsome man?

 

The breed originated in Switzerland.

 

10. Labrador Retriever

Like the Golden Retriever, the Labrador Retriever has all the same positive qualities as its relative (the breeds share the same ancestors). The specialization of a gun dog-addled mind.

 

A devoted companion who can understand you better than many people.

 

The breed originated in Canada.

11. Belgian Shepherd (Tervuren)

Combines two intelligent breeds presented in the list - a shepherd dog and a shepherd dog. Do I need to say that this guy is a born intellectual?

 

The breed was bred in Belgium.

 

12. Pomeranian

And what, what is decorative, funny, and small? Intelligence does not directly depend on the volume of the brain; it depends on the number of convolutions ...

 

The breed was bred in Germany.

 

13. Vizsla

Vizsla, another Hungarian dog on our list, is a hunting dog breed first officially mentioned in 1357. This breed's lively, soft, intelligent, and sensual nature makes them excellent companions and family pets.

 

But they cannot do without training - only mental stress can reveal this diamond's facets.

 

The breed was bred in Hungary.

 

14. Keeshond

The Keeshond, a breed native to Holland, has close ties to the German Spitz. It is also called the "German Wolfspitz."

 

The breed is larger than the Spitz but also has a highly balanced disposition and a sharp mind, so much so that it can self-learn complicated logical tricks.

 

The breed was bred in Holland.

 

15. Miniature Schnauzer

Despite the somewhat offensive nickname that became the breed's name, the miniature schnauzer can be translated as "horse gnome" With a funny look and small size, it is a severe dog, fearless, sensitive, attentive, easily trained, and devoted to the owner.

 

The breed was bred in Germany.

 

16. Australian Shepherd

A handsome man with the muzzle of a thinker. The owners note one fascinating character trait of these dogs - they are hardworking. And that's the kind of thing that's a by-product of the mind.

 

The breed was bred in the USA.

 

17. Border Collie

The Border Collie is a herding breed of dog. Like many representatives of this branch, border collies are not only able to cope well with logical tasks but also know how to unquestioningly obey human commands and work autonomously (subject to proper training) with other animals, but they are also distinguished by endurance, kindness, and courage since trained for centuries to protect the weaker from predators and outsiders.

 

The breed was bred on the border of Scotland and England.

19. Rottweiler

Despite the widespread belief that the Rottweiler is a dangerous and wayward dog that is difficult to control, this is not the case. Rottweilers have a calm and strong character and a stable psyche.

 

Perhaps people confuse aggressiveness with a certain tendency of these powerful dogs to dominate, including in communication with people. Therefore, it is essential to properly educate a dog and build a hierarchy in which the owner will be the main one; this breed, not deprived of intelligence, will execute commands with a bang!

 

The breed was bred in Germany but had roots in the Roman Empire.

 

20. Pembroke Welsh Corgi

The breed originated in Wales.

 

21. Belgian Malinois

Like the Belgian Tervuren, the Malinois is intelligent.

23. Weimaraner

The Weimaraner is a breed of hunting dog bred in early 19th century Germany, favored by the royal family for its stunning looks, athleticism, and intelligence.

 

Once used to hunt big game such as wolves and bears, their descendants now excel in various dog sports.

 

However, being very energetic and intelligent, Weimaraners need proper training to remain calm and control their strong hunting instinct.

 

The breed was bred in Germany.

 

24. English Cocker Spaniel

Spaniel dogs have been known for at least 500 years, although the first English Cocker Spaniel breed books were registered much later, in 1874. Bred for hunting, the Cocker Spaniel soon gained popularity among other dog breeders due to its intelligence and good nature.

 

The breed was bred in the UK.

 

25. Australian Cattle Dog

26. German Shorthaired Pointer (Kurzhaar)

The Kurzhaar is a versatile breed of hunting dog, bred in the 19th century in Germany.

 

The breed is known not only for its intelligence but also for its restless character, eccentricity, and temperament, which can be influenced by heredity, training, and level of socialization.

 

The breed was bred in Germany.

 

27. Breton Spaniel

The Breton Spaniel came to us from France or the province of Brittany (northwest of the country).

 

Dogs are energetic, so they have to go on long walks; do not forget about the warm-up for the pet's head.

 

The breed was bred in France.

 

28. Tibetan Mastiff

The Tibetan Mastiff is a large but kind dog for walking and hunting. A rare combination for herding dogs.

 

Unfortunately, such a large breed is practically not intended for living in an apartment - it needs space and constant physical activity.

 

Despite the good disposition, the dog can become highly aggressive and dangerous without proper training.

 

The breed was bred in China.

 

29. Chesapeake Bay Retriever

The Chesapeake Bay Retriever, developed in the United States in the 19th century, has historically been used for hunting, pulling fishing nets, and rescuing fishermen. This breed is known for its good disposition, intelligence, and affection for people.
