Species: Zebra | Location: Serengeti, Tanzania
Native to Africa, zebras are close relatives of the horse and donkey. The difference is their stripes – and strangely enough, no two zebras will have the same pattern. (Much like no two human fingerprints are the same). An interesting behavior is “zebra necking” - where two zebras rest their heads on each other, looking very much like a couple of zebras in love.
