ABout Grant’s Zebra

Zebras sleep in turns so there is always someone protecting their herd.

They take part in social grooming by nibbling at each other’s necks and backs and will stand nose-to-tail so they can groom simultaneously while also keeping watch for predators in both directions. No two zebras have the same stripe patterns.
