Grevy's Zebra

Grevy's Zebra

Grévy's Zebra is the largest of all wild equines. It is 2.5--2.75 m (8--9 ft) from head to tail with a 38--75 cm (15--30 in) tail, and stands 1.45--1.60 m (4'7"--5'3") high at the shoulder. These zebras weigh 350--450 kg (770-990 lb). The stripes are narrow and close-set, being broader on the neck, and they extend to the hooves. The belly and the area around the base of the tail lack stripes. With all of the stripes closer together and thinner than most of the other zebras, it is easier to make a good escape and to hide from predators. The ears are very large, rounded, and conical. The head is large, long, and narrow, particularly mule-like in appearance. The mane is tall and erect; juveniles having a mane extending the length of the back.
