Name : Zebras

Description : Zebras look similar to horses. They stand between 47 and 55 inches (120 and 140 centimeters) tall at the shoulder. Each species of zebra has its own pattern of stripes. The plains zebra has broad stripes that are widely spaced. The stripes of Grevy’s zebra are narrow and closely spaced, and the belly is white. The mountain zebra has a gridlike pattern of stripes on the rump.

Classification : Mammals

Diet : Zebras eat mostly tall, rough grasses. Some types also eat shrubs, herbs, and bulbs.

Habitat : Females and their young usually live in small family groups headed by one male.

Other details : Grevy’s zebra is endangered, or in danger of dying out. The mountain zebra also is threatened. People are trying to save zebras by breeding them in captivity and then releasing them into the wild.
