Odd-Toed Ungulates: Perissodactyla - Habitat

grasslands found live zebra

Tapirs prefer to live near permanent bodies of water and enjoy tropical forests. The exception is the mountain tapir, who lives in the Andes Mountains.

Rhinos can be found in rainforests, grasslands, and scrublands (region similar to grassland but which includes scrub vegetation). These mammals must live near water for drinking and bathing. Asian rhino fossils have been found in the Himalayas at an altitude of 16,100 feet (4,900 meters), though today they're found at altitudes of up to just 6,600 feet (2,000 meters).

Horses live in grasslands and desert scrublands. Plains zebra and the mountain zebra prefer greener grasslands and savannas where vegetation is more plentiful.
