Abstract

Eye and limb preferences were scored in the closest undomesticated relative of Equus caballus using the same methods as used previously to study laterality in feral horses. Observations were made of 33 Przewalski horses ( Equus ferus przewalskii) (male N=20, female N=13) living under natural social conditions on a large reserve in France. Significant left-eye/side biases were found in agonistic interactions within harem bands ( MSE bias to left 58%0.01 for threats, P
