Grevy's Zebra

Grevy’s Zebras do not have secure harems like the Chapman’s and Mountain Zebra. The basic social unit is a mare with most recent one or two offspring who associate with other mares and their young. The adult males are either territorial or live as bachelors. The bachelor males live singly or in small groups. As long as there are no females around, male Grevy’s get along amicably. A single foal is born after a gestation period of 12 – 14 months. The new born foals weigh approximately 35 – 40 kg and are weaned by an age of 10 to 11 months. The foal's stripes are usually more chestnut brown in colour than those of its parents, growing darker with age. As well as the Grevy’s Zebra, Marwell also has two other Zebra species, the Chapman’s (Equus burchelli antiquorum) and Hartman’s (Equus zebra hartmannae) Zebra, both of which are vulnerable in the wild. A forth member of the Zebra species, quagga, has been extinct since 1875.
