The zebra is a lovely and wild animal that is native to Africa. Its black and white stripes are unique to each zebra and works like a human’s fingerprint. There are three species of zebras: the Mountain Zebra, the Plains Zebra, and the Grevy’s Zebra. Both the plains and mountain zebras have horse-like features while the Grevy’s is very similar to an ass. The plains zebra is the most common type of zebra and has 12 subspecies. The Grevy’s are rare and wild zebras. They are also the largest. The Grevy’s and the Mountain zebras are endangered. This is caused by the destruction of their natural habitat and hunting.
