Equus grevyi

Grevy’s Zebras have black stripes that cover their whole body, except for their belly, which is white.  Stripes confuse predators by making it difficult to single out an individual when they’re gathered in a group.  

Each zebra has a unique stripe pattern, like a person’s fingerprint.

The species has undergone one of the most significant reductions of range of any African mammal.  Competition with domestic grazing animals, habitat destruction, and human disturbance at critical water holes have added to their decline.

Near the end of the 1970s, the Grevy’s Zebra population throughout Africa was about 15,000.  Now, just 30 years later, it is estimated that less than 2,000 Grevy’s Zebras live the wild. 

  • Love this zoo! Great place to get a walk in and the animals are everywhere! The museum/indoor part is very educational too. Has a lot of shade for when it's hot out. Very clean. Friendly staff.

  • The museum gives you a break from the sun on hot summer days and has a great selection of animal exhibits from around the world.  The zoo keeps growing and adding new animal habitats or improving existing ones.  Membership offers reciprocal benefits to other zoos around the country.
