Celebrate International Zebra Day by learning all about the largest of these striped equids: the Grevy’s zebra! Grevy’s zebras stand 4-5 feet tall at the shoulder and typically weigh between 770 and 950 pounds.
What do Grevy’s zebras eat?
These equines mainly eat grasses, but they’ll also feed on bark, fruit and leaves. They typically spend more than half their day grazing, and their teeth are well-adapted for munching on tough, coarse grasses that can be difficult for other herbivores (or plant eaters) to digest.
Do zebras have good eyesight?
Yes! Grevy’s zebras have very keen eyesight and can spot movement at great distances. Their large eyes are set far back on their heads, giving them a wide field of vision.
