Zebras are very social animals that are often spotted in the wild in large herds. But where do zebras live? This post aims to answer that question and also tell you some other interesting things about zebras.
Where do zebras live?
While there are a few zebras living in zoos around the world, they are only found in the wild in one continent- Africa. Plains zebras, which live in grassland, live all around Africa. Mountain zebras, which (as the name suggests) live in mountainous regions, live in dry southern African countries- Angola, Namibia and South Africa. Grevy’s zebras, which live in shrubland and grassland, live in Northern African countries- Kenya and Ethiopia.
Interesting things about zebras
