Saw this little guy in the Letaba river bed on the H1-5 on the 31st of March. Did not seem to be suffering and was full of life, running around, flapping ears, trying to teach his trunk to do what he wants it to do .. The rest of the heard treated him same as all the others ...

I do hope the little guy gets a chance in nature to live a great life ...

Zebra with a white tail

Unread post by Ziets » Wed Mar 23, 2016 3:16 pm


We recently spent 7 days in the Kruger - early March - just before the big rains. On the day we left the park, we came across a Zebra with a white tail, which i thought was strange. I have sent the photo to a tour guide that i know, and according to him, it was indeed a rare sighting as it was only the tail and no other part of the body that was effected. The sighting was between Afsaal and Malelane gate. Is there someone at SANPARKS that would be able to explain how this happens?
