Fun Friday The Letter Z: Zebras
Today for the last post on Fun Friday I will be telling you about Zebras.
The Zebra is a member of the horse and donkey family that is found in Africa.Each stripe on a Zebra is different in it's own special way.It is rare but you can sometimes find a albino Zebra,as seen up in the left hand corner.The mare of a Zebra kind of sits right on it's back which makes it different from most horses.Also unlike there cousins the horse and donkey most Zebras are not domesticated.They are too wild and will not obey there masters orders.They rang in size to about 4-5 feet and weigh up to 400 pounds.
they are herbivorous and usually at the grass of the plains that they live on but they also eat twigs,bushes,bark and more.The reason they can eat all that stuff is because they have very good adaptable stomachs.A Female horse has about 1 foal per year and the baby's are brown and white unlike there parents which are black and white.
That's my report on the Zebra hope you enjoyed the Fun Friday event.The End.
