Zebras

Zebras happen to be part of the horse family referred to as African equids. Their distinctive feature is their black and white stripped skins. Their close relatives include donkeys and horses, all of whom have been domesticated. The endless stripes makes zebras easily to identify in the wild. They are herbivores. Therefore, they occupy several vegetations including woodlands, mountains, grasslands and savannas.
