One important way to help protect endangered species is to raise these special animals in zoos. The best way to save a rare species is to make its native habitat safe.  The Denver Zoo is doing both!  They raise zebras and work to make a the zebra’s natural habitat in Kenya safer as well.

Neat Zebra Facts:

  • Baby zebras have brown stripes, not black, which helps them to blend into the background.
  • Stripe patterns are unique to each zebra–no two are alike.
  • Zebras can live 40 years.
  • The shiny striped fur of the zebra reflects over 70% of the heat from the sun.
  • The zebra is a close relative of the horse, but has never been tamed.

Thank you, Denver Zoo, for these fabulous pictures!  We can’t wait to see more!
