Our giraffes and zebras are currently having a garden makeover, and we apologise for any inconvenience caused to your visit.
What they look like
The Chapman’s zebra is a medium subspecies of the zebra group. With some of the most famously patterned coats in the world, no two zebras ever have the same stripe pattern.
Zebras may have evolved stripes for social recognition or to confuse and dazzle predators such as lions. These sociable animals communicate using barks, neighs or squeals.
What they eat
Mostly grass, leaves, bark and buds
Where they live
South western Africa and Zimbabwe
Poached for their skins and sometimes bushmeat. Lions and African hunting dogs often prey on them.
