Believe it or Not, This is Good for the Zebras (and the Cheetahs)

Posted By: on March 26, 2012

Many have questioned the placement of the zebras and cheetahs at the National Zoo because of the “cruel” proximity of predator and prey. The reality is that full-grown zebras are not on the cheetahs diets and the zebras have shown to be more relaxed and even mate more often when their predators are upwind so they can keep tabs on them.

Still, it looks a little precarious for both parties.
