“During the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, several Spanish hunting treatises alluded to a mysterious, now-vanished equine creature known as the zebro (or encebro, in Aragon), living wild in the Iberian Peninsula. In one of these works, it was described as ‘an animal resembling a mare, of grey colour with a black band running along the spine and a dark muzzl’. Others likened it to a donkey but louder, stronger, and much faster, with a notable temper, and whose hair was streaked with grey and white on its back and legs. What could it have been?”
Those are the opening words to a new post from Dr. Karl Shuker, and as always it’s a good one!
