Like all zebras, my black and white coat is unique. It is so unique that each of us has its own pattern, like humans and their fingerprints. Our stripes are useful not only for identifying us: when the dazzle (name for a group of zebras) is gathered, they create an optical effect which confuses our predators. Furthermore, the black and white contrast reflects sunlight and keeps us cool.
I am the biggest, but also most endangered of all zebras. Like many African animals, we are in competition with farmers for territory, but one thing is sure: if humans organise themselves, we could all live in harmony!
