What Sound Does a Zebra Make?

While it might not “sound” that obvious, zebras do indeed produce noises. Some of them are very close to what horses sound like, yet they also have a very distinct high-pitched noise that makes them special.

Generally speaking, zebras either bark, bray or snort. Such sound signals may express alertness, curiosity, or can be used as a greeting, to show impatience or anger.

Depending on the pitch and intensity, zebra sounds can either signify “hello” or “leave me alone”. 🙂
