Zebras

Described as a "horse in striped pajamas," three species of zebra inhabit Africa. They are equiids, which means they are members of the horse family and are odd-toed ungulates. Zebras inhabit tropical grasslands in sub-Saharan Africa. Social herd animals, they live in groups called harems. Their distinctive black and white stripes have made them a favorite of children for many generations.

Is a zebra black with white stripes or white with black stripes?

It is believed that zebras are black animals with white detail for three main reasons. The first is that white equids would not be able to survive well in the plains or forests of Africa. Secondly, the extinct species of plain zebra, known as the Quagga, had the white stripes of zebras today on the front of their bodies, but a dark coloured rump. The third reason is based on the Shadow stripes. When the pigmented white band becomes to wide, a secondary stripe starts to emerge. The idea that some zebras have white under bellies and legs is not thought to be evidence of an overall light colour, since many animals of different colours have white or lighter coloured bellies and legs.

Trick question a zebra isn't a horse at all but it is black with white stripes even though it has a white belly.

The zebra is one of the oldest members of the horse family of equines. Zebras are actually black with whte stripes. This is because the fur is black and the white is where pigmentation is simply lacking.

Is a zebra a type of horse?

No, zebras are not technically a type of horse, though they are both equines. Both belong to the genus Equus, which also includes donkeys, but they are separate species within that genus. Sometimes, these three different species are referred to as the "horse family," but that's not a scientific distinction.

Horses and zebras have different amounts of chromosomes; therefore, they very rarely have offspring that can also reproduce, which is one of the requirements for considering different animals part of the same species. To top it all off, zebras actually resemble donkeys more closely than they do horses.

Incidentally, when zebras and donkeys reproduce, the offspring is called a zonkey, which is unrelated but quite delightful.
