Zebra - Burchell's
The plains zebra (Equus quagga, formerly Equus burchellii), also known as the common zebra or Burchell’s zebra, is the most common and geographically widespread species of zebra. The plains zebra is mid-sized, smaller on average than the other two zebra species, and thick bodied with relatively short legs. There is some variation in size, based on the animals' condition and subspecies. Like all zebras, they are boldly striped in black and white with black or dark muzzles, and no two individuals look exactly alike. All have vertical stripes on the forepart of the body, which tend towards the horizontal on the hindquarters.
