This video segment provides a basic overview of zebras, focusing on how a zebra family is structured. Zebra families are very tight-knit; a single stallion leads his harem of females and their offspring. Stallions are extremely territorial and are fierce protectors of their mares and offspring. Stallions can "win" harems – for example, if a stallion dies, other stallions compete to take over the dead stallion's harem. Competition is fierce, but very rarely ends in bloodshed.
