Common Zebra in Tanzania

Common zebra in Swahili: punda milia (Equus burchelli)

Shoulder height: 130 cm; weight: 300–340 kg. This attractive striped horse is common and widespread throughout most of East and southern Africa, where it is often seen in large herds alongside wildebeest. The common zebra is the only wild equine to occur in Tanzania, and is abundant in most conservation areas, especially the Serengeti where the population may be as high as half a million.
