Why was it never domesticated?
>>
Not cute enough
>>
Basically just fancy looking, horribly misbehaving donkeys. Literally.
There's literally no advantage over donks besides the meme stripes.
>>
>>3952010
why are all the actual wild horses such extreme levels of asshole?
they're aggressive, stupid, and some of them(onagers) have a mating ritual where the dominant male literally just runs around ragemode raping every female he can get to until at least one or two of them dies from exhaustion.

they're the most retarded spastic animal on the planet.

The ones we domesticated were probably just as dickish before we domesticated them.

Spreading lies I see.

did they rebuilt it with sand?

Partially. Slap an omelet in it too.
>>
unironically think it's because they aren't built to handle loads like horses or donkeys. they're also terribly aggressive and bite for the hell of it

The backs aren't slanted in just the right way to ride so they were just left alone.

And why have the parts of the bridge built by the Europeans centuries ago not washed yet?

washed away*

"Impossible to domesticatw" is a jewish lie.
Donkeys are just better than Zebras in every way (they're close relatives.)

The reason that africa had less developement is because of how fucking huge it is. There were just not enough people per km2 to form settlements, or even build cities. Same reason slavery always was a thing there. Because any developed region in africa was low on HR, so slaves were collected on the whole continent.
Europeans were also never able to domesticate Zebras btw.
>>
>>3952294
If whites werent forced out of the countries they built in Africa, the entire continent would be 10x better off than they are now. The entire continent allows itself to be subjugated by others. Why should they be propped up by society when they're too dumb and lazy to even defend themselves?
>>
>>3952069
Because of the pixels
>>
>>3952294
Zebras could be domesticated within a decade by europeans. They haven't been domesticated because they're worse donkeys/mules.
>>
>>3952544
So they are rather donkeys than horses, but even more stubborn? Still anon, I mean we domesticated wolves by training and picking the calmest ones for mating. This would be considered impossible if you observe a wolf now. Shouldn't it work out with any animal?
>>
>>3952229
How do you know which parts were built by who? It's been rebuilt over and over again by both Africans, Euros and even Americans since 1901. The original materials used were stone, sand, lime and egg whites. I'm not here to argue, I'm here to correct false information. Take that information how you see fit.
>>
>>3952022
So they are like humans?
>>

same reason nobody bothered with bison. they're unruly assholes who's utility gets done by a better alternative (in this case, the aurochs/cattle)

texans literally domesticated zebras already

This is not a good excuse, since humans managed to ride even dromedary.

Were horses and donkeys' ancestors always strong, or did we make them like that via artificial selection?

Europeans didn't invent it either, they got the idea from the middle east like most inventions of that time

stupid excuse, Asia is larger
low density is an effect of low progress
>>
>>3952010
Because people are pussies and think we things like government agencies that go around looking for people with wild animals to kill them.

Like some sick death patrol with "I'm the good guy." mask on.

Africans never saw the need. For instance, hyenas are fine as it is. Why would you make them smaller and dumber? Then women wouldn't admire you for taming hyenas. To hunt? You're already tripping over wild game over there.

Some of them also rode elephants, which don't need domesticating due to their intelligence and non-predatory nature, and there's a possibility they partially domesticated cheetahs.

There's a youtube video that explains it.

...Africa is literally where humans originated from though. Hasn't there been enough time in the past 200,000 years to populate it fully, if that had been a problem? I don't think your argument makes any sense.

I remember hearing somewhere that it's because they're not social animals i.e. their herds don't have a social hierarchy, so humans can't exploit that to be "the alpha"
>Horses form herds with a dominant male and female
>Zebra stay in large numbers because it's beneficial (more ears and eyes, your chances of being predated on are lower) but it's basically each zebra for itself
Also, there's not much need to domesticate when we've already had horses and donkeys for so long, why go through all the trouble of domesticating them when we already have two animals which already do what they would do, but better?
