Amazing Animals: Zebras

*Zebras like to be around other zebras!
They are very social, but they cannot be ‘domesticated’ like their other horse relatives…
They are free!
They enjoy their freedom!
(Can we blame them?)

*They come from Africa!

*Their stripes are very unique and no zebra looks exactly like another!
This is very cool!

*They absolutely LOVE to eat grass!

*They can see and hear amazingly well!
(So don’t talk bad about a zebra otherwise she is going to hear you and feel really sad…)

*Have you ever wondered why zebras have stripes?
Because they confuse their predators!
Specially when they are all huddled together!
They create a cool ‘optical illusion’ and make it more difficult for the other animals to attack and eat them…

*They can run pretty fast, at about 35 miles per hour!

*They also sleep standing up, just like horses!

*When a zebra is being chased by a hungry lion, cheetah, hyena or leopard, it will start running from size to side.
Meanwhile the other zebras will NOT run away scared!
They will form a circle and stand up to the predator to try and help their friend being attacked!
Wow!
Talk about being a good friend!

*Mom zebras stay pregnant for about one year to 14 months!
That’s more than humans!
