Grévy's Zebra at Zoo Leipzig, also known as "Leipzig Zoological Garden" (Germany)

The Grévy's Zebra (also known as the Imperial Zebra) is the largest extant wild equid and the largest and most endangered of the three species of zebra, the other two being the plains zebra and the mountain zebra. Named after Jules Grévy, it is the sole extant member of the subgenus Dolichohippus. The Grévy's Zebra is found in Kenya and Ethiopia. Compared with other zebras, it is tall, has large ears, and its stripes are narrower. The Grévy's Zebra lives in semi-arid grasslands where it feeds on grasses, legumes, and browse; it can survive up to five days without water.
It differs from the other zebra species in that it does not live in harems and has few long-lasting social bonds. Male territoriality and mother–foal relationships form the basis of the social system of the Grévy's Zebra. This zebra is considered to be endangered.
