Burchell's or plains zebra
The Oregon Zoo
At least, I think this is Burchell's zebra. Zebras have been seen in photos and books and at zoos for so long that we get used to looking at them. But when you really begin to think in a fresh way about the patterns and colors on these animals, zebras a truly amazing-looking creatures not like anything else on Earth.
Yes, we have zebras!
