Black white stripes

Black & White stripes

  • Zebras have black and white stripes all over their bodies. Each stripe is unique.

  • These stripes confuse their predators and makes it difficult to make them out from each other in a group.

  • Their stripy shiny coats also prevent them from overheating in the open plains of Africa.


Predators

Predators

  • Their jaws are long and thin and their eyes are on the side of their heads so they can see if predators are coming.

  • Zebras stick together in a herd. They must be wary of lions and hyenas.

  • If a zebra is attacked, the whole herd will try to defend it.
