Mountain Zebra


The Mountain Zebra (Equus zebra)is native to south-western Angola, Namibia, and South Africa. Like all zebras, Mountain Zebras are boldly striped in black or dark brown, and no two individuals look exactly alike. The whole body is striped except for the belly. In the Cape mountain zebra, the ground color is effectively white, but the ground color in Hartmann's zebra is slightly buff.
Mountain zebras are found on mountain slopes, open grasslands, woodlands, and areas with sufficient vegetation, but their preferred habitat is mountainous terrain, especially escarpment with a diversity of grass species
