Zebra prices can run from a couple of thousand dollars to nearly ten thousand dollars, depending on a number of factors. It is not legal to own a zebra in all states (California forbids ownership), but in those where it is permissible (including Wisconsin and West Virginia), the cost of owning a zebra is generally out of the price range of the common zebra lover.
The plains zebra is the only zebra that can be owned legally in any state. Other species are endangered or protected, and can thus only be obtained by wildlife sanctuaries and zoos. An animal crossbred with the zebra may be a more affordable alternative. Zorses are a combination of horse and zebra, and zonkeys are a cross between a donkey and a zebra.
