Hartmann’s Mountain Zebras
Habitat: Grasslands Africa!
Our stallion, mare, and foal are found in our Grasslands habitat and can often be found exploring, play fighting, grooming one another, and watching our zoo guests. Hardy and adapted to arid conditions, they might only be observed drinking once a day.

Unlike their Plains cousins, Mountain Zebras have harder, pointed hooves specifically adapted for climbing, giving them access to higher slopes and allowing them excellent vantage points to aid in the search for water. They watch larger hoofstock to warn of approaching danger.
