Full Answer

A zebra can also snort and nicker. These sounds are similar to the sounds that a horse makes. The snort, a hard exhale of air through the nose, is a signal of excitement or pleasure. A nicker, which is a soft exhale through both the nose and the mouth, is a sign of familiarity and a greeting between members of the same herd.
