International Zebra Day

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:

  1. Closely related to horses and donkeys
  2. Zebras have black skin under their coats
  3. They are endangered
  4. Each zebra’s stripes are unique, just like fingerprints
  5. There are three main zebra species: The Grevy’s, Mountain and Plains
  6. Zebras can bark, bray, snort and huff and the position of their ears can signal their feelings
  7. When under threat, they run in a zig zag pattern to escape
  8. They are herbivores and live on mostly shrubs, bark, grass and leaves
  9. They can live up to 25 years of age
  10. They can sleep standing up

I found all of these facts at the following sites:
