Z is for Zebra

I have two questions for you:
  1. Are zebras horses?
  2. Are they white with black stripes or black with white stripes?
I also have the answers:
  1. Yes, they're African equids (i.e., horses, donkeys, and zebras).
  2. Black with white stripes.
Other interesting facts:
  • Three types of zebras exist.
  • Zebras are herd animals.
  • Zebra stripes are a form of camouflage and, when standing in a group of other zebras, one zebra is hard for predators to identify.
  • No two zebras have the same stripe pattern--each pattern is like a unique fingerprint.
My sister went on safari in Africa and actually saw several herds. Neat animals.

Z end. Thanks for visiting me during the A to Z Blogging Challenge!
