Hi everyone, Max here. It’s time for some Friday Fun again...playing the tour guide.
You might have noticed that one of the toys in my collection is a ZEBRA, so this time I thought I’d tell you all about our African” Donkeys-in-pyjamas”...
These beautiful, wild horse-like creatures roam our wild plains in herds or “harems” (groups of females with one male). They have black/brown and white stripes and impressive mowhawk-like manes.
There are about 3 different species in Africa. Each individual zebra however has a specific pattern of its own. It’s something like a fingerprint – a unique identification pattern. It has been recorded, however, that if a zebra is born with a particularly unusual pattern, it will most likely NOT survive since it is thrown out of the herd.
ZEBRAS are hunted by lions and hyenas, but also African hunting dogs, leopards and cheetahs. Their defence is their herd. They are very social animals and together they all keep a watchful eye open for danger.
If you are interested in some videos, I recommend the following two:

... where you can see lots of stunning zebra pictures.
In the meantime, maybe you would like to answer this question:
ARE THESE CREATURES “BLACK WITH WHITE STRIPES” or “WHITE WITH BLACK STRIPES”?
I personally think that they are White with Black stripes.
Well, that’s all for now. Have a stunningly barkful weekend.
