    As this is Australia, may be a long time till they can source some females?

    According to the 2011 Zebra ARR, three male zebra were recommended for transfer to Australia Zoo from Werribee Open Range Zoo (hope I am allowed to say this here).

    Even if they do fall in love however, babies may not be forth coming, as two of the males have been neutered...
