Heads or Tails
The Grevy’s Zebras, are the largest of the three zebra
species, living on the dry scrublands of East Africa.
Stallions defend large territories in the hopes of attracting herds of females wandering through.
Mares give birth to their 125-pound foals during the rainy season, when water and food is plentiful.
The well-developed newborns are able to stand within minutes and are soon able to run
with the herd to avoid lions and hyenas.
Poaching for their coats and competition with livestock for food and water have
caused a decline in wild Grevy’s zebra populations.
