Baby Chapman Zebra
Baby girl is born on March 31/2012.
Chapman’s zebra (Equus quagga chapmani) is a subspecies of plains zebra. They, like their relatives, are native to the savannah of north-east South Africa, north to Zimbabwe, west into Botswana, the Caprivi Strip in Namibia, and southern Angola. The Chapman’s zebra eats mainly grass and occasionally shrubs. They are currently at low risk status on the endangered species list, but like all other animals are at risk because of habitat destruction and illegal poaching.
Chapman’s zebra is distinguished by stripes on the lower halves of the legs, which break up into many irregular brown spots. The pastern is not completely black on the lower half. When foals are born they have brown stripes and in some cases adults do not develop the black colouration in their fur and keep their brown stripes. Males usually weigh 600-800 pounds and stand at 48"-52" tall. Females approximately weigh 500-700 pounds and stand as tall as the males
