Moving in large groups, zebras confuse their enemies with their dramatic black and white striping that makes it difficult to pick out a single animal. If this camouflage doesn't prevent an enemy's attack, a zebra can run away at up to 40 miles (60 km) per hour and kick hard enough to kill an attacker. Like their relatives, domestic horses, zebras are social animals

Overview

Moving in large groups, zebras confuse their enemies with their dramatic black and white striping that makes it difficult to pick out a single animal. If this camouflage doesn't prevent an enemy's attack, a zebra can run away at up to 40 miles (60 km) per hour and kick hard enough to kill an attacker. Like their relatives, domestic horses, zebras are social animals. Most zebras live in groups called bands or harems. Zebras can eat a wide variety of different plants, so they can live in many different habitats. Their homes include grasslands, lightly wooded areas, and towering mountain slopes.
