But even then, ponies are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to this world's diversity of sentient life. Zebras, buffalo, griffons, and donkeys rub shoulders with ponies on a regular basis. Yaks, changelings, and diamond dogs can bring friendship or trouble, depending on the whims of the individual or group being dealt with. And then there are the large and potent species, such as dragons and sphinxes, which thankfully are typically encountered alone, given they're often powerful enough to overcome even groups of ponies.
And that still isn't all of them! As you can see, Equestria plays host to an incredible variety of sentient species. So be careful what you say around an unfamiliar life form. It may very well respond to you... or tell someone else what you said.
