Hi,

1. There are some things about idioms that you just need to memorize. This is just not appropriate. You are better off writing -> Zebras are more vicious THAN horses.

2. As compared with (or to) horses, zebras are vicious. Note that the GMAT doesn't really emphasize the difference between compared with and to.

Regards,

Shouvik.
