Zebra foals are born with brown and white stripes which turn to black and white as it matures.
The Common Zebra (Equus quagga burchellii), also known as Burchell's Zebra or the Plains Zebra, was once thought to be hunted to extinction. It is now the most commonly found zebra in game parks, but remains threatened in the wild.
