Zebras are easy prey. They are herbivores so they eat only plants. They are not looking for other animals to eat. However, they are not so lucky since they are prey for many other animals. Some of these animals that prey on zebras include African lions, leopards, and cheetahs. These animals have an advantage over zebras.

They have sharp teeth and can run very fast. They are bigger or the same size as zebras. However, there are other animals that are smaller than zebras and still attack them. These are the African Wild Dogs and Spotted Hyenas. Since they stay together in packs, they can attack zebras. Crocodiles attack zebras too. However, an animal that many don’t think of that hunt zebras are humans.

It is the lion that mainly seeks out zebras which make a hearty meal for them and their family. However, they may be killed by opportunistic wild cats and dogs of various kinds: leopards, cheetahs, hyenas and possibly ranging wild dogs.

When zebra are taking water they are at risk from crocodiles. Crocs like anything of good size with blood. They will certainly have a go at a zebra, and often do.
