Zebra - Cape Mountain

Go Back

The Cape Mountain Zebra (Equus zebra zebra) is the smallest of the zebra species. It has more stripes than the Burchell's Zebra because the stripes on the body are narrower than those on the Burchell's. The horizontal stripes on their legs extend right down to the hooves, and the hindquarters are covered with broad black stripes. The underparts are white and don’t have stripes. Cape Mountain Zebras congregate in breeding herds of one to five mares and their foals, under the leadership of a single stallion. The other stallions congregate in bachelor groups. The Zebras are most active early morning and from late afternoon to sunset. They generally drink twice a day, and a daily dust bath is usual.
