Figure 2. Grevy's
Zebra can be
readily told from other zebra species by its close narrow black stripes,
which on the hindquarters do not become predominantly horizontal.
Note also the long, narrow muzzle; long, donkey-like ears; slender limbs
and small hooves.
Figure 3 (below). Another look at
Grevy's Zebra, this time from the rear. Note again the long, narrow
muzzle, large ears and the narrow, black
stripes on the hindquarters, most of which are not horizontal,
Another unique feature of Grevy's
the longitudinal black stripe running along the back which, on the
posterior half of the animal, is separated by white from the black vertical stripes
of the flanks. Photograph by Liz Allen (USA).
