Photographer's Note

Scientific Name:Equus burchelli

Home: Savanna grasslands of eastern Africa

Description: Sleek, plump, short-legged horse with broad black and white stripes, black nose, and a short, bristle-like mane that stands up

The plains zebra grazes two-thirds of the day on red oat grass, leaves, bark, roots and stems. Excellent hearing and vision help a zebra to keep alert for predators like lions and hyenas. Zebras stay in family groups of a stallion, or male, and several mares, but different families will come together in huge herds of hundreds of zebras. Herds will mingle with wildebeests, ostriches, and antelope while they graze, and even come to depend on them as additional protection against predators! Zebras are always busy and alert, and very noisy - - they make a lot of sounds!
