Caption: Burchell's zebra (Equus burchelli) mother and foal at a watering hole. Zebra are wild horses that live on the vast open plains of eastern Africa. Burchell's zebra is also called the plains zebra. It lives in herds of several hundred individuals and each herd's territory may cover several square kilometres. The zebra has a gestation period of around one year, and the foal stays with its mother's herd. It is an important prey animal for large carnivores such as lions, but can run fast for long distances, and can put up a powerful fight if they are caught. Photographed in Mkhuzi, South Africa.
