Friends with Benefits

Where you’ll find one, you’ll find the other. It’s no coincidence that the zebra and wildebeest are BFFs. They naturally protect and provide for each other.

Both zebras and wildebeests are grazers, which means the diets of both species consist of grass. Yet they are never in competition for food. That’s because the wildebeest’s mouth is shaped to allow it to grip the shoots of short grass. The zebra, however, prefers chowing down on the longer grass, chomping it down to the ideal length for the wildebeest to easily be able to savor.
