You can never mistake a zebra for another animal with its unique black and white stripes. Every zebra has its own set of stripes that will always be different from the rest. This is very similar to our own fingerprints. They eat grasses, leaves, fruits, and roots. Zebras tend to stay in herds and even group themselves into different families in a herd. The zebra family usually consists of a male, some females, and their offspring. Zebras can run 40 miles per hour and their young can already run an hour after they are born. There are three different zebra species: the Plains, Grevy’s, and the Mountains Zebra.
