Don't Hurt The Beautiful Zebras
They arn't hurting us so we shouldn't hurt them
This zebra is looking around for food.
All of the zebras are taking a refreshing drink at the lake.
These zebras are eating grass.
Why is saving this species important to it's ecosystem?
Zebras are a type of mammal called an equid, which is related to a horse. Zebras are recognized for their crazy striped coats. They are very important to their ecosystems, playing the role of a consumer, and it would hurt the food chain.
(A consumer means to destroy or expend by use; use up.)
Why The Zebras are Important.
The zebras are important because they are getting hunted and habitat loss. People feel bad because we have killed about 2,000 Grévy's Zebras. This could hurt the food chain. People should let every animal have a chance, and we think the zebras can.
Why is the Grévy's Zebras endangered?
Lions, cheetahs, hyenas, hunting dogs, leopards and humans are a reason why they are endangered. Grévy's zebras are endangered due to hunting and habitat loss. Humans are affecting the zebra because, the are hunting them and have hunted over 2,000 zebras.
- Grévy's Zebras live in the grassland and feed on grass.
- They can go five days without water.
- Zebras don’t have stripes on their bellies.
- The Grévy's zebra was first discovered by French in 1882. Fossils of zebra like equids have been found throughout Africa and Asia. (Equids are mammals that have muscular bodies with long, skinny legs adapted for running).
- The first three zebras were Plains zebra, the Grévy's zebra, and the Mountain zebra.
- Grévy's zebras graze primarily on tough grasses, but they also browse on leaves, which may constitute up to 30 percent of their diet.
Thank you so much :D
