common zebra: wildebeest migration

Equus quagga


Zebra and wildebeest migrate together, each species contributing their strengths in detecting predators - as well as contributing to the size of the herd which allows for the protection of the individual. IN addition, zebra eat the longer tougher grass while the wildebeest eat the shorter tenderer grass, thus not competing for resources




During migration, the herd follows instinct and the changing conditions. This means that on any given day you may see millions of animals, or zero, as they often backtrack to prior locations
