Grévy's zebra (Equus grevyi ), also known as the imperial zebra, is the largest living wild equid and the most threatened of the three species of zebra, the other two being the plains zebra and the mountain zebra. Named after Jules Grévy, it is found in Kenya and Ethiopia. Compared with other zebras, it is tall, has large ears, and its stripes are narrower.
The long-legged, endangered Grevy’s zebra is the largest of the wild equids. It is distinguished by its unique stripes, which are as distinctive as human fingerprints. Foals are brown with reddish-brown stripes, and gradually their coats darken to black. The Grevy’s are more closely related to the wild ass than the horse, while the plains zebra is more closely related to the horse. Grevy’s also are taller, have larger ears, and have narrower stripes than plains zebras. They are the largest of the zebra species.
The black and white stripes appear all over the zebra's body, even on their mane and ears. While their coat is black and white, their skin is dark brown or black. Grevy's zebra have about 80 stripes in all. Grevy's zebras have many other adaptations that are common to all zebras.
Grevy's zebras are endangered. Now confined to northern Kenya and southern and eastern Ethiopia, Grevy's zebras have faced one of the greatest range reductions of any African mammal. They no longer live in Somalia, Eritrea and Djibouti, and may be gone from Sudan as well.
- The stripes on their body serve as ideal camouflage against predators, which hunt mainly by dusk. When noticing a predator, Grevy's zebras usually remain motionless in the tall grass until the danger has passed.
- Grevy's zebras actively use vocalizations in the daily life, although the related plains zebras are even more vocal. One of the typical calls is a loud, donkey-like bray, serving as a form of communication between conspecifics.
- Male Grevy's zebras maintain the largest home ranges among all herbivore around the globe. A single individual may have a huge territory of up to 10 sq. miles.
- In the ancient Roman circus, these animals were called "hippotigris", translated as horse-tiger or tiger-horse.
- The Grevy's zebra is so called after the President of the Third Republic regime of France, Jules Grévy. In 1882, he got specimen of the Grevy's zebra as a gift.
- As a matter of fact, zebras are white with black stripes, not vice versa.
