Zebra Facts:

Any of three species of black-and-white striped mammals of the horse family. Indigenous to Africa. Northern zebras have more stripes than southern ones. Believed that stripes act as camouflage. Vertical stripes allow them to hide in grass. Their main predator, the lion, is color-blind. Slower than horses, but great stamina allows them to outpace predators. Have excellent eye-sight, with eyes on the side of the head for a wider field of vision. Have great hearing, and have larger and rounder ears than horses. Can turn ears in almost any direction. Ear movement also signifies mood. When calm, ears are erect; when frightened, pulled forward; when angry, pulled back. Sleep standing up, but will only sleep when others in group are awake to warn of predators. Feed mainly on grasses, but will also eat shrubs, herbs, leaves and bark. Live in small family groups consisting of a stallion and several mares with their foals. Mares may have first foal at age 3. Males start to breed at age 5. Mares may give birth to one foal every 12 months. She nurses foal for up to a year. Foal is brown and white instead of black and white. More resistant than horses to disease. Unable to train – unpredictable nature and panic under stress. All three species decreasing in numbers due to human activity. The mountain zebra and Grevy’s zebra are endangered.
