Plains Zebra


We saw plenty of Zebra in Botswana and Zimbabwe, but few, if any, in Zambia.  They are beautiful, but skittish, animals.  We never got the answer to "are they black on white or white on black."  Healthy Zebra do have a reddish tint to their mane.  Some zebras also had a reddish tint to the white part of their coat.  The foals' legs are almost as long as the adults so that when they are in the center of the herd or zeal, they are not as recognizable to predators.
