Caption: Zebra foal (Equus sp.). This wild horse lives on the open plains of eastern and southern Africa, in herds of several hundred individuals. The foal is born after a gestation period of around one year, and after weaning stays with its mother's herd. The zebra is an important prey animal for large carnivores such as lions, but it is capable of high speeds when being chased. Its striped patterning is also thought to confuse predators during an attack on the herd, making it more difficult for them to select a single target.
