        Video should be titled "why some animals aren't worth the effort of domestication".

                          False dichotomy, at one point the Horse was more like the Zebra than today and the only way it changed is due to Human interference and the pressures placed on it that changed how it reacts said pressures.

                          The Zebra not being domesticated has a far simpler answer than anything you are suggesting.

                          it never was a thought for the peoples who lived in Africa - or still live in Africa come to think of it.

                          Where that realisation leads you might be considered racist but when the world and facts are considered racist, then there's not much hope left is there.

                                I don't think so ... because wild oxen were dangerous also wild horses like gazelles ibex also jumpy....but it has to be that lots of domestication of plants and animals happened in the middle east and china and mesoamerica.they almost domesticate every thing even trying to use cheetahs.and thats because of agriculture...and now people lost the interests of that...for example there are lots of bovine and antelopes in subsaharan africa that could be domesticated...like Eland

                                    2:34 - Dissing hippies to score a point with a stupid claim ("domesticated plants are just as man made as pop=tart") - A pity.
                                    I liked the video so far, but that spoiled it. Reconsider your attitude, dude ...

                                                                                          3:49 Because the humans there didn't know how to do so.
                                                                                          Horses used to be shorter, hyper-aggressive, and even had stripes like zebras until a few daring humans decided to domesticate and use these wild beasts to great effect (See the Indo-European expansion and the rest of Eurasian history for that matter).
                                                                                          However, despite a 60,000-year head start, the people living around zebras never thought of such a thing and any taming of them had to be done by foreigners like the Germans (who tamed them and used them extensively as a replacement for horses in Namibia during WWI when horses were hard to come by).
                                                                                          If a group of animals can be contained, their reproductive behavior can be controlled. If their reproductive behavior can be controlled, then a domesticated version of that animal can be bred into existence. This is how humans domesticate animals (and how we could get war bears if we really wanted to despite how impractical and difficult it would be)

                                                                                          I sure wonder why you would leave out this information. Does it not fit into a certain narrative?

                                                                                          EDIT: However, I do agree if an animal doesn't want to reproduce in captivity, it can be difficult to domesticate them (or you could breed the few fertile ones to make a more fertile animal breed/species).
