Well over a million wildebeests and zebras migrate together from one end of the Serengeti to the other each year, following the water. Their great defense is their numbers. We watched them stroll peacefully past lions and cheetahs who were obviously not hungry at all. The zebras eat the taller grass and tend to be toward the front of the herds. The wildebeests are much more numerous - and much more shy.
By the way - zebras bark!
