Habitat

Zebras live together in large herds in Africa. Some zebras live in dry or hilly areas. Other zebras roam grassy areas.

Food

Zebras graze all day. Their sharp front teeth snip off tall grasses. Flat back teeth help zebras

chew the grass.

Life Cycle


Female zebras give birth to foals. Foals can walk an hour after they are born. Young zebras stay with their mothers for three years.

Body

Zebras look like horses with black and white stripes. Zebras have short manes and long tails. Zebras weigh about 600 pounds (272 kilograms).
