Did You Know? :hmz:
The top speed of a Zebra is between 60 and 70 km/h, but the herd will run as fast as the slowest member of the herd to stay together.

Zebra-Mutation or Normal?

Unread post by andyaxa » Fri Sep 23, 2016 8:26 pm

Are the spots on this zebra's back normal? I don't think we saw any others like it on our recent trip.
