No, zebras are not faster than horses. This is probably one of the reasons why people never bothered trying to train zebras to carry people to different places. The hooves of the zebra are smaller than that of a horse.
This means that it will not be able to carry as much weight as horses. A zebra can still be fast when it is running on its own at up to 40 MPH. The horse is known to be faster at 54 MPH. There is something unique about zebras that horses cannot do though and that is to run in a zigzag manner.
This is a strategy that they use when they want to get away from a predator. It will be harder for the predator to predict where they are going to go.
There are many different types of animals that resemble a horse. They have four legs, a muzzle and ears that stick up. If you drew a horse, it would be difficult to determine whether you were drawing a horse, donkey or zebra. However, there are differences among these three animals especially between the horse and zebra. The first difference is the size of them. Zebras are known for being much smaller than the average horse.
Zebras also are not tame like horses that can be tamed. If they ran a race, the horse would definitely win because horses run faster than zebras. In the wild, zebras must rely on their other methods to defend themselves against predators by camouflaging themselves with their surroundings.
Zebras are not faster than horses. A horse can achieve an average speed of 50 miles per hour, while a zebra’s top speed is 40 miles per hour.
Horses are able to run faster because they have longer legs than their bodies but the zebras’ legs are about the same length as their body.
While a zebra is not as fast as a horse, it has good endurance and it also has the ability to run in a zigzag manner from side to side, this allows it to outpace its predators and making it more difficult for the predator.
