|Burchell's Zebra, Equus
Etosha National Park, Namibia
Pictured above is the sub specie Chapmans Zebra, E.b.
antiquorum. It has black stripes, often alternated with ghost
stripes. The legs are incompletely
Looks quite horse-like with short, pointed ears and a upright mane
off stiff hairs on the neck. Weights about 300kg. The general color is
white or buff with broad black stripes extending very low on the flanks
to the belly. There are no grid-pattern on the base of the tail as on
the other Zebras (i.e. Grevy's and Mountain zebra). There are large
geographical variations of this specie. Actually there are not two
similar Zebras found anywhere, but some subspecies are recognized.
