WHAT IS THE ZEBRA ?

There are three species of Zebra, all native to the African continent. They differ slightly in their stripes but all have the same general shape. The Zebra's diet is mostly grass and herds will migrate hundreds of miles in search of food as the seasons bring rain or drout. When water is scarce they gather at ponds where they are often attacked by predators.



Zebra's are often food for Lions, Crocodiles, Cheetahs or Hienas.

Remember that there are ways to buy a zebra if you want to, but they are herding creatures; you should never buy just one. There are people who own zebras in a private setting. If started at a young age, they can be tamed and can even be ridden like a horse. However, zebras are herding creatures. Is it really fair to have just one zebra?

The Zebra is africas version of the horse. Male typically weigh 550 lb (250 kg), ht 51-56 in (127-140 cm); female wt 484 (220 kg), ht slightly shorter than male.

The Zebra is one of the most numerous and successful large herbivores, adapted to a broad range of grassland habitats. But Zebra's are usually outnumbered by the wildebeest. A pioneer in the grazer community, first to enter tall or wet pastures, followed by wildebeests and gazelles after zebras have trampled and cropped the grass shorter; also crops short greenflush with its matched set of incisors and mobile lips much more efficiently than wildebeests and most other ruminants.

Zebra's are more active in daylight, spending nights preferably on short pasture relatively safe from ambush. Zebras graze individually an hour or so at a time at night but move about very little. Resting zebras often steep soundly, but at least one herd member remains standing and alert. At daybreak in warm weather, herds begin filing to pastures of longer grass and may cover over 10 mi (17 km) before settling for another night. Mass movements between pastures and sleeping grounds, and to water at midday, are also peaks of social activity; stallions in bachelor herds are especially active and entertaining to watch.
