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, is described. These data was obtained from a study of 1100 skulls at the National Museum Bulawayo (now the Natural History Museum of Zimbabwe). 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.
