Zebra

Zebra is one of the beautiful animals that I really like to watch.  We visited  Wildlife Ranch in San Antonio Texas last June 11 as part of our  early summer vacation.  The ranch is huge.  Visitors can drive around the ranch and see the beautiful  critters.  Visitors  may feed the animals but you are not allowed to go down the vehicle.  It was a fun day for all of us especially for the kids.
Zebra belongs to a horse family.  The three species of Zebra includes plain zebras, Grevy's zebra, and the mountain Zebras.
According to Wikipedia The plains zebra and the mountain zebra belong to the subgenus Hippotigris, but Grévy's zebra is the sole species of subgenus Dolichohippus. The latter resembles an ass, to which it is closely related, while the former two are more horse-like. All three belong to the genus Equus, along with other living equids.
