This was taken at the Virginia Safari Park in Natural Bridge, Virginia. There are 180 acres there where the animals roam free. This is called a Burchell’s Zebra, whos natural range is in West Africa and Zimbabwe. The average height is 5 feet and they can weigh between 500 and 700 pounds. It’s very impressive to see these animals in a natural setting and really nice that they are used to people driving through and will get close to the vehicles. This was taken with a Kodak Easyshare DX 3900 Camera with 3.1 megapixels.

    Very nice capture Ginny. The park must be a great place to visit.

  • It’s awesome! You can drive through over and over if you want to. There is another section too with different animals. They have 2 Bengal Tigers. Of course they can’t let them run loose out there or they would kill all the other animals. lol I love to go there. Thanks Victoria!!

    instant fav for this zebra profile.. so you went to the zoo.. without me.. lol

  • LOL Well come on by Dee and we will go together!!! lol The Safari Park part of it isn’t like a Zoo at all. All the animals are loose on 180 acres all together…no fences in between any of them!!! Thanks Dee! And thanks so much for the fav!!!
