Gezien in het Gaia park in Kerkrade !!

 

Maandopdracht april de Doka, structuur/patronen !!

 

De zebra is een kleine, gedrongen paardachtige, afkomstig van de steppes van Centraal en Zuid-Afrika. Ze worden gekenmerkt door hun zwartwit gestreepte vacht. De strepen op de vacht zijn bedoeld om roofdieren in verwarring te brengen. Een kudde vormt voor een roofdier een grote massa en individuen zijn hierdoor moeilijk te onderscheiden.

Safari Sunday....

Dieses Zebra stand ungefähr zwei Meter von meinem geöffneten Autofenster entfernt.

its as Marty the Zebra said : " I'm ten years old. My life is half over and I don't even know if I'm black with white stripes or white with black stripes! "

The Zebras were in a mood! San Diego Zoo, California

Went for editing on this one.Love the 2 contrasts.

Just something a little different with the focus being on the eye of the center Zebra. It could make you dizzy if you stare at it too long.

Plains zebras have a wide range in east and southern Africa. They usually live in treeless grasslands and savanna woodlands and are absent from deserts, rainforests, and wetlands. This species’ habitat is shrinking, however, and plains zebras are now extinct in Burundi and Lesotho.

  

The Grant's Zebra (Equus quagga boehmi) is the smallest of six subspecies of the Plains Zebra.

The distribution of this subspecies is in Zambia west of the Luangwa river and west to Kariba, Shaba Province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, north to the Kibanzao Plateau. In Tanzania north from Nyangaui and Kibwezi into southwestern Kenya as far as Sotik. It can also be found in eastern Kenya and east of the Rift Valley into southernmost Ethiopia. Perhaps it also occurs as far as the Juba River in Somalia.

This northern subspecies is striped with black on a white coat on its head, neck, flanks, haunches and whole of the limbs down to the hoofs. Shadow stripes are absent or only poorly expressed. The stripes, as well as the innerspaces, are broad and well defined. Northerly specimens may lack a mane. This completely maneless Somali population may represent even a seventh subspecies: Equus quagga isabella (Ziccardi, 1958). This subspecies may be valid, but at present there is no evidence that it is.

Zebras are important prey for lions and hyenas, and to a lesser extent for hunting dogs, leopards and cheetahs. When a family group is attacked, the members form a semicircle, face the predator and watch it, ready to bite or strike should the attack continue. If one of the family is injured the rest will often encircle it to protect it from further attack.

A leopard cannot change it's spots, nor a zebra it's stripes.
