Zebras are African equines with distinctive black-and-white striped coats. They can be found in a variety of habitats such as savannahs, grasslands, woodlands, shrublands, and mountainous areas. They are primarily grazers and can subsist on lower-quality vegetation. Their main threat as far as predators go are Lions, as they can be very vicious and use their teeth and hooves to inflict serious damage.
The Hartman's mountain zebra is found in the western semi-arid regions of Namibia, from where they also range into Angola.
The Cape Mountain Zebra is the smallest of the zebra species and were formerly widely distributed in the mountain ranges of the Eastern and Western Cape. Due to hunting pressure this species was almost extinct in the mid-1930's. It was saved by the 1937 proclamation of the Mountain Zebra National Park in the Eastern Cape.
The geographic range of Burchell's zebras spreads throughout southeastern Africa, with the highest population densities in the Serengeti-Mara plains of Kenya and Tanzania.
