Grant's Zebra 1

Grant's Zebra

Scientific name: Equus quagga boehmi


Our zebra are one of the distinctive animals in the zoo, due to their stripey coats. These patterns are unique to each zebra, almost like a fingerprint, so can be used to identify individual animals. Grant's zebra are the smallest subspecies of the Plains Zebra. 

Zebras are sociable creatures and will travel in large herds, grazing on grass, protecting each other and even giving each other a wash and a tidy-up! There are four species of zebra: Plains, Cape Mountain, Hartmann’s and Grevy’s. The Grant’s zebra is a sub species of the Plains zebra.
