Zebra is one of the most numerous and successful large
herbivores, adapted to a broad range of grassland habitats.
But Zebra's are usually outnumbered by the wildebeast.
A pioneer in the grazer community, first to enter tall
or wet pastures, followed by wildebeests and gazelles
after zebras have trampled and cropped the grass shorter;
also crops short greenflush with its matched set of incisors
and mobile lips much more efficiently than wildebeasts
and most other ruminants.
