Grevy's Zebra, Equus grevyi

   grevy's zebra grevy's zebra

        Grevy's zebra has a smaller geographic range than the plains zebra, and is found in small groups in the arid grasslands of Kenya, Somalia, and Ethiopia (Clutton-Brock 1992, Sterry 1994).  This range may overlap with that of E. burchelli, and in these areas the two species coexist without intermixing (Clabby 1976).  E. grevyi is the largest species of zebra, and can be identified by its size (14-15hh), narrow stripes, dorsal stripe, and large donkey-like ears (Clabby 1976).
