The Grevy’s zebra has much narrower stripes that the other two zebras species, and it can live on grasses which are too tough for cattle to eat or digest. Originally from Northern Kenya and Ethiopia, you will discover a whole herd of Grevy's zebra at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo.
Grevy’s zebras are successfully bred at ZSL Whipsnade Zoo as part of a European Endangered Species Programme, with 26 foals born over the years.
The Grevy's zebra is classified as 'Endangered' on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. In the past - particularly in the 1970s and 80s - the Grevy's zebra suffered declining numbers due to commercial hunting for their skins and have continued to be affected by habitat loss.

Seems like more of our animals have taken to this 'follow the leader' game.
Our rockhoppers have been playing 'follow the leader'. It's like our human version but involves more hopping.

Keep sending in your #FanFriday zoo snaps.
Think giant pandas are fussy about food? Giant pandas eat almost every part of bamboo but a red panda only likes to eat the young shoots and leaves. A very fussy dinner date!
Smile for the camera!

Do you like Scott's new hat? We haven't the heart to tell him it's just some leaves.
We think our rockhoppers are quite enjoying their new view.
Happy Valentine's Day!
