Grant’s Zebra

zebraGrant’s zebras are found in the plains areas of Africa. Herds of zebras are led by one male. Zebras will always travel as a herd and will never leave weak or young behind. Instead, the herd will slow their pace to accommodate the slower members.

Each zebra has a unique set of stripes and no two zebras are exactly the same. These unique stripes hold the zebra’s identity much like our fingerprints do. The zebra’s stripes also help to confuse predators such as hyenas, lions and African dogs.

When a baby is born, it will have brown stripes which will turn black once the baby is weaned from the mother.
