Artist's Description

*The zebra is the horse of the savanna. Grant’s zebra is the most abundant of the 3 species of zebra. The zebra looks like a horse, only smaller. It doesn’t sound like a horse, and “barks” instead of neighs. Its height is about 50 in. from shoulder to hoof, and weighs in at 500 to 600 pounds. It has rather short legs and a large head. The zebra has black and white stripes, a black nose, and black hooves. It also has a short, erect mane. The stripes on its side are vertical but bend to become horizontalon its rump. Every zebra’s stripe pattern is different.

The zebra lives in close-knit groups called families or harems, led by a single male. There can be up to 17 members in each family. Everybody in the family relies on each other to look out for danger and help those who are in trouble. They stay close to each other even when they migrate in herds of 10,000 or more. They slow their pace for weak or young members and never leave them. They can live to be 28 years old.

There are about 300,000 zebras left on the savanna.*
