Burchell's Zebra - Focus on stripes
A Burchell's Zebra mare poses for a shot of stripes and sleepy focus. Both the plains zebra (Burchell') and mountain zebra (Hartmannae) are specially protected in Namibia (only 10 species on the Specially Protected list within Namibia). This due to the illegal trade of this animal's skins.
Burchell's zebra is a southern subspecies of the plains zebra. It is named after the British explorer and naturalist William John Burchell. Common names include: Bontequagga, Burchell's Zebra, Damara Zebra, and Zululand Zebra .
Burchell's zebra is the only sub-species of zebra which may be legally farmed for human consumption in the UK.
