Grant’s Zebra is native to Central and South Africa, living in the savanna, grasslands, and woodlands.
Zebras are able to travel up to 1,800 miles in search of food during the dry season. They often travel in herds of thousands of mainly females and foals with few males.
Fun Fact: Each zebra has its own unique stripe pattern – just like our fingerprints. Their stripes are laid out in a unique pattern of black or brown and white stripes. Zebras have dark skin, black hooves, and short dense fur, potentially to protect against the harsh African sun.
Grant’s Zebra are herbivorous, eating vegetation and grasses.
Our zebras’ names are Riley and Glenda!
