Zebras are African equines with distinctive black-and-white striped coats. There are three extant species: the Grévy's zebra, the plains zebra, and the mountain zebra. Zebra stripes come in different patterns, unique to each individual. Several theories have been proposed for the function of these stripes, with most evidence supporting them as a form of protection from biting flies. Zebras inhabit eastern and southern Africa and can be found in a variety of habitats such as savannahs, grasslands, woodlands, shrublands, and mountainous areas.
