Zebras Predators


Zebras are large horse-like mammals that are found in Africa. Their most recognizable characteristics are black and white stripes that cover their bodies. Zebra stripes are like fingerprints; each pattern is unique to each zebra. Zebras are social animals and live in small groups, called harems, or large herds. These herbivores are preyed upon by carnivores that share their habitat and by humans.
