Artist's Description

Click on the image to view larger

Like horses, zebras are able to stand, walk and suckle shortly after they are born. Plains zebra foals are protected by their mother as well as the head stallion and the other mares in their group. Even with parental protection, up to 50% of zebra foals are taken by predation, disease, and starvation each year.
Like all zebras, they are boldly striped in black and white, and no two individuals look exactly alike. They also have black or dark muzzles. A zebra foal is brown and white instead of black and white at birth. All have vertical stripes on the forepart of the body, which tend towards the horizontal on the hindquarters.
