Z for Zebra at the Zoo

CIMG2628-1

The zebra’s stripes are unique to each individual. It was previously believed that zebras were white animals with black stripes. Embryological evidence, however, shows that the animal's background color is black and the white stripes and bellies are additions. (Source: Wikipedia)

At our zoo, the zebras roam a ‘savannah’ together with other African animals like elephants, giraffes and antelopes. (Follow the link for more pictures.)

  2. The zebras were my favorite at the zoo! I think there are three different kinds. They are so striking to look at, and you got a lovely picture here, showing so much, almost like he stopped to pose for you!
