Today we spotted a dazzle (herd) of stripy ZEBRA’S on our virtual safari! . Zebra’s are not fat…they might just look like it! This is due to their bloated stomachs filled with bacteria helping to digest all the grass they eat. This fermentation produces a lot of gas and will bloat their stomach, giving them a well-nourished appearance. There are three different species of zebra in Africa, the Plains Zebra, Grevy’s Zebra and Mountain Zebra united by their distinctive black-and-white striped coats. Their stripes come in different patterns, unique to each individual (like our fingerprints). They are generally social animals that live in small harems to large herds. Unlike their closest relatives, horses and donkeys, zebras have never been truly domesticated due to their stubborn nature. . The most common zebras we see on our Epic Enabled safaris are the Burchell’s Zebra which is a southern subspecies of the Plains Zebra. It is named after the British explorer and naturalist William John Burchell. . For more info please visit our blog: https://epicenabled.blogspot.com/2019/04/what-animal-am-i-zebra.html .
