Zebra: perfect symmetry

By woxys
Plains Zebra (Equus quagga borensis, zebra bezhriva) from ZOO Liberec, Czech republic :aww: honestly, I like this shot a lot :blush:

EDITED 4/10/2011: better quality, sharpness, color tones. And I submitted it as print! :D


Name: Plains Zebra (Equus quagga borensis)
Location: Uganda
Size: 1, 4 m high weight: 340 kg
Diet: grass, lot of water needed
Predators: lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas
Interesting facts: the mane is missing | zebras live in family groups of 5-20 members, they often keep close to other zebra’s family groups and wildebeests | the herd has its hierarchy. The leader of the herd is a female | young males often gather into bachelor groups | they are active during the day | they are rolling in sand to get rid of parasites | the female gives birth to one baby every year | life span of this zebra is 20-40 years

Wow. I guess you don't really stop and think about how amazing their colouring is usually do you? This is just phenomenal. What amazing creatures.
