A zebra cannot run faster than a horse. The top speed of a zebra is approximately 40 miles per hour. The top speed of a horse is approximately 54.7 miles per hour, with a world record of 55 miles per hour.
While a zebra is not as fast as a horse, it has good endurance which allows it to outpace its predators.

If cornered, a zebra fights back by kicking and biting.Learn More
