Photographer's Note

I would like to say goodbye for some weeks with a picture of one of my favourite animals - Zebras. I like those black & white stripes. Here you could see plains zebras at a pond.

Thanks to all TE friend for the lot of helpful comments and improvements. Hopefully I could remember them for my next shots from West Africa.

Zebras ...
The earliest known ancestor of the animals in this family was a small animal called Hyracotherium, or more commonly, Eohippus, which lived 60 million years ago during the Pleistocene Epoch. Animals known to be the direct ancestors of the modern horse, ass, and zebra appeared in Europe, Africa, and Asia about 4 million years ago during the Pliocene Epoch. Like other members of the horse family, zebras are primarily grazing animals. They feed on coarse grass, leaves, and shoots. (partly from the encyclopedia)
