Grevy's zebra

Probably the highlight of my visit to Africa was this pair of Grevy's zebra, this desert species is becoming increasingly rare and there is believed to be only around 2500 left with numbers decreasing rapidly.  These fine animals are taller and more graceful than common zebra with much more delicate stripes.  The ears are larger and used for signalling as well as listerning in all directions, note one of these is listerning behind while watching us.
