As Different As Fingerprints

This is the second type of zebra that we saw.  Grevy's zebra has wider stripes with some coming forward from the tail.  Although the stripes are similar, no two zebras have exactly the same pattern.  The Grevy's are plentiful and we saw all sizes and even some slight differences in the color of the stripes.  The striping serves as sunscreen and camouflage.
