It may also reflect feelings that someone is beautiful and then realizing they are less intelligent or mature than you first thought.

Negatively, a zebra may reflect a person in your life that keeps giving you false ideas about what they are willing to do with you or for you. Someone interesting or "perfect for the part" with potential to fill a role that totally embarrasses you with opposite thinking. Embarrassment or feeling let down that someone will never do the one thing you would like them to. Dashed high expectations.

Example: A young woman dreamed of seeing a zebra. In waking life she had just had a big argument with her boyfriend. The zebra reflected her disappointment with her boyfriend not doing something she got her hopes set on him doing.    TOP

Zoo

To dream of a zoo represents situations where you are noticing negative or primitive behavior in others. You may be near people who are less mature or intelligent than you are. Not wanting to get involved in silly or "stupid" matters. It could also represent exploration of something dangerous while being safe.

Alternatively, a zoo may reflect disbelief at how "crazy" a situation is. You may feel surrounded by chaos or confusion.

Example: A woman dreamed of visiting the zoo. In waking life she was giving her boyfriend a second chance after a fight. The zoo reflected her living arrangements with the "stupud" boyfriend that she didn't feel was really going to change.     TOP
