    Thank you for the first infos.

    Since when the WAP is mixing them with the cattle and antelopes ? So also the zebras are only males ?

    No, those other species are all male, separated from their main herds. There were only a few individuals of the other species in the enclosure when I was there last month.

    I know that Franklin Park has them mixed with Giraffes (I always thought of that place as heaven for zebra fans such as myself). Also, Southwick's has them mixed with Ostrich, Buffalo, and Wildebeest, or at least they did last time I was there.

    Bronx Zoo keeps their Grevy's Zebras separate.

    Washington NZP keeps theirs separately as well. So does the Cincinnati Zoo, I believe.

    Lowry Park kept them with white rhinos as late as summer 2014, they probably still do

    Lowry Park does still keep their zebras with their rhinos, as zoo_enthusiast stated. Peoria mixes them with White Rhinos as well.
    Phoenix mixes their zebras with Marabou Storks.
    Sacramento mixes theirs with Ostriches.
    Great Plains mixes their Grevy's Zebras with Giraffes and Crowned Cranes.
    Reid Park mixes theirs with Ostriches, Cranes, and Guineafowl. This might have changed.
    I think Boise, Brookfield, Denver, Jacksonville, Saint Louis, Sedgwick County, and The Living Desert keep them separate from other species. I don't know about the others that weren't mentioned already on this thread.
