Zebras

Drawing comparing the dimensions of a zebra to a human

Zebra are a variation of the horse family known for their uniquely distinct coats of black-and-white stripes. Typically traveling in herds, zebra are found in many different habitats throughout Africa including grasslands, savannas, mountains, hills, and woodlands. Not unlike a fingerprint, the coat patterns on every individual zebra are different and are used as a form of camouflage that makes it difficult for predators to target a single zebra in a herd. Zebras have a length that varies between 5’4”-8’ | 1.6-2.4 m, a shoulder height in the range of 3’6”-5’ | 1.1-1.5 m, and weight between 440-990 lb | 200-450 kg.
