DescriptionVictoria Falls, Zimbabwe
This zebra had stepped back from the road when we approached and was standing just inside the tree line.
This is a plains zebra. Grevy’s Zebra is a similar sub-species but is larger with denser strips. Barely visible in this picture are the ‘ghost stripes’ the light brown stripes between the black stripes. These are easily seen on the plains zebra, especially in younger animals as they fade as they get older.
