Arnoldia Vol 1(22) 1964 ERZ W. Tooth eruption and replacement in Burchell’s Zebra, Equus burchelli Gray 1825. 1-8p

The order of tooth eruption and replacement in the Burchell’s Zebra, Equus burchelli Gray is described. These data were obtained from 1100 skulls at the Natural History Museum Zimbabwe, Bulawayo. No definite foaling peak can be established from these data, and as a result no definite criteria for ageing can be given.
The order of tooth eruption and replacement is similar to that of the domestic horse.
