Zebra animal wallpapers
ZEBRA, striped mammal native to Africa and belonging to the genus Equus, of the family Equidae, which includes the HORSE and the ass. The zebra is smaller in size than the horse and greatly resembles the wild ass in habit and form, having a short, erect mane, large ears, and a tufted tail. The stripes, which distinguish this animal from other members of the horse family, serve as protective coloration in its natural habitat. The chief enemy of the zebra is the lion, but it is also hunted by Africans for the flesh and hide. Zebras can be trained to work in harness and are popular animals in zoos and circuses.
