It’s not all black & white

The zebra is the quintessential African animal - the fat horse in stripy pyjamas at the end of every child’s alphabet ― but there’s more to them than meets the eye, says Mike Unwin
Manoj Shah

There are three different species of zebra, all of which inhabit woodland, savannah and arid terrain across southern and East Africa. They are highly sociable grazing animals that live in family groups, and in some areas ― famously the Serengeti ― gather in mass migrations. Their principal predators are lions and spotted hyenas. The plains zebra, the most common species, stands up to 1.3m at the shoulder and weighs up to 350kg. It lives around 25 years in the wild. A female gives birth in summer after a 360-day gestation period. Her single foal stays close and can move with the herd within half an hour of birth.
