Hoofprint Facts

 

  • No two zebras are alike — their patterns of stripes are as unique to each individual as human footprints.
  • Although it seems counterintuitive, zebras’ stripes are thought to act as camouflage, helping to hide them in their native grasses and savannahs and breaking up the outline of their bodies – especially in fleeing herds – to confuse predators.
  • Zebras’ coats dissipate up to 70% of the heat from the sun.
  • A herd may migrate as much as 1,800 miles in search of food and water.
  • There are three species of  zebras, all native to 15 countries, mostly in subsaharan east Africa; there are two groups of mountain zebras in southwestern Africa.
  • Zebras’ primary predators are lions, cheetahs, leopards, hyenas, and man.
  • Plains, or Buchell’s Zebras, the largest subgroup are thought to number around 750,000.  The biggest threat to zebra populations is loss of habitat.
