Zebra and Foal
   
       

Hartmann's Zebra and Foal
 

This Hartmann's zebra and her foal are natives of the African savanna, or grassy plains. Zebras are social animals, living in small family groups within a larger herd. Their distinctive stripes provide protection against their main predator, lions, by making it difficult for a lion to find a specific zebra within the herd. And to answer that age old question: if you were to shave a zebra, you would actually have a black animal!
