The zebra (Equus quagga), also known as the common zebra or the plains zebra, is a species of wild horse native to eastern and southern Africa. It is one of the six extant species of the genus Equus, and is closely related to the donkey and the horse. The zebra is distinguished from other equids by its distinctive black and white striped coat, which serves as camouflage, thermoregulation, and social signaling. The zebra has six subspecies: the quagga (E. q. quagga), the Burchell’s zebra (E. q. burchellii), the Grant’s zebra (E. q. boehmi), the Selous’ zebra (E. q. selousi), the Chapman’s zebra (E. q. chapmani), and the Crawshay’s zebra (E. q. crawshayi)ยน.

The zebra is a herbivore, feeding mainly on grasses, but also on leaves, shrubs, bark, and fruits. It has a simple stomach and a large caecum, which allows it to digest fibrous plant material. The zebra is highly social, forming large herds of up to several thousand individuals. The basic social unit is a harem, consisting of one dominant stallion, several mares, and their offspring. The stallion defends his harem from other males and predators, such as lions, hyenas, and crocodiles. The zebra has a loud, high-pitched bark, which it uses to communicate with other zebras and warn of danger. The zebra can run up to 65 km/h (40 mph) and is capable of swimming and jumping.

The zebra is one of the most iconic and recognizable African animals, and has been featured in many cultural and artistic works, such as paintings, sculptures, literature, films, and music. The zebra is also a popular attraction in zoos and wildlife parks, where it is bred and conserved. The zebra is listed as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and is threatened by habitat loss, hunting, and disease. Conservation efforts include habitat protection, anti-poaching measures, captive breeding, and reintroduction programs.
