Taken at whipsnade zoo early Thursday morning july 17th 2014. I was actually taking a photograph of several lions that were close to the edge of their cage. I realised they were staring past me and I asked a keeper what he thought they were looking at. He told me to turn round and I would see a newly born zebra, born a few hours before. I did turn round and I did see a newly born zebra. Notice that although black and white it still has a tinge of brown.
The Grévy's zebra , also known as the imperial zebra, is the largest extant wild equid and the largest and most endangered of the three species of zebra, the other two being the plains zebra and the mountain zebra. Named after Jules Grévy, it is the sole extant member of the subgenus ''Dolichohippus''. The Grévy's zebra is found in Kenya and Ethiopia. Compared with other zebras, it is tall, has large ears, and its stripes are narrower.
The Grévy's zebra lives in semi-arid grasslands.. more
