Social Nature of the Zebra and the Migration
A dazzle of zebras is common collective noun used to describe a group of zebras. It is named for the motion dazzle effect created by a group of running zebras. Other names give to a group of zebras are harem, herd or a zeal of zebras.
Zebras tend to live in tight-knit societies. It is not uncommon to find harems of up to six breeding females and their young, with a dominant male. Each female has a place in the hierarchy. For protection, zebra harems often graze together and with other grazers like the wildebeest.
The famous 1,800 mile annual migration between the Serengeti in Tanzania and Maasai Mara in Kenya is often associated with wildebeest. However, thousands of zebra also partake in this same migration. The massive number of grazers means there are more eyes and ears to warn the gathering about any intruding predator. Evidently, zebras also have good night vision and excellent hearing abilities.
These groups are so close that if a predator injures one individual, fellow members will circle it. Subsequently they will attempt to scare the intruder away with their teeth and hooves. They can be aggressive if they need to. Not only can they kick each other to death, but they are also known to kill lions.
May the zebra teach you the value of partnership and creating strong bonds. This is in order to achieve systems of support and security. Pair these earrings with the Zebra Gold Plated Necklace to create your own “dazzle” of zebras. This striking effect will result in the unique look that zebra symbolism encourages you to pursue.
