Zebras live in the African savannah and belong to the horse family. Each zebra has a unique fur coat pattern consisting of black and white stripes. Even its mane is striped. The pattern provides camouflage, confuses predators, protects against mosquitoes, makes the heat more bearable, and helps the animals to recognise each other.
Zebra foals can run with the herd just 20 minutes after birth. In the first days, however, the mare stays very close to her foal, so that it can acquaint itself with her scent, appearance, and voice. Zebra foals don't just have a mane on their neck. Its continues along their entire back, up to their tail.
At birth, zebra foals don't have black, but brown stripes.
