Meet the Burchell’s Zebra!

The zebra has a striped coat that, in addition to being extremely eye-catching, is very useful: paradoxically, it helps to camouflage the zebra in its own habitat. The mix of light and shadow in the savannah prevents it being identified at a distance. It’s almost as if the vertical lines of its body break down its silhouette and make it practically invisible in his environment.

What are its habits?

The Burchells’ Zebra is designed to run away quickly, at a gallop, so its real specialty is running. As in all equids, its legs rest on a single toe; in this case, however, it has long, slender limbs with strong muscles in the upper part.

It lives in huge groups along with other animals such as wildebeests and ostriches. In the savannah, there is a mutual collaboration between different species: the ostrich watches out for predators in the distance, while the zebra sniffs and discovers nearby dangers
