Today is the day of the Zebra!
As long as I can remember, I have loved the zebra. I, at one time, was even obsessed with zebra print.
No, not real zebra skin, but the print. I was a little Carol Baskins with it.
Still to this day, I love the print of zebras.
In celebration of this awesome day, I compiled a few facts about the Zebra for you:
- Closely related to horses and donkeys
- Zebras have black skin under their coats
- They are endangered
- Each zebra’s stripes are unique, just like fingerprints
- There are three main zebra species: The Grevy’s, Mountain and Plains
- Zebras can bark, bray, snort and huff and the position of their ears can signal their feelings
- When under threat, they run in a zig zag pattern to escape
- They are herbivores and live on mostly shrubs, bark, grass and leaves
- They can live up to 25 years of age
- They can sleep standing up
I found all of these facts at the following sites:
