Plains zebra

Zebras are very adaptable grazers. They feed mainly on grasses but will also eat shrubs, herbs, twigs, leaves and bark. Plains zebras are pioneer grazers and are the first to eat at well-vegetated areas.  

Zebras stripes are just like fingerprints. Each zebra has it own unique pattern. They are generally social animals and can be seen in large herds with other grazers. Zebras are important prey for lions and hyenas, and to a lesser extent for hunting dogs, leopards and cheetahs. When a family group is attacked, the members form a semicircle, face the predator and watch it, ready to bite or strike should the attack continue. If one of the family is injured the rest will often encircle it to protect it from further attack.

DID YOU KNOW? Underneath its hair, a zebra's skin is black!
