The Grevy's zebra looks more like a big donkey than a horse.
Its thin, tightly spaced black or brown stripes decorate its
barrel-shaped body. Some scientists believe the zebra's unique
stripes act as an air conditioner. Each black stripe has a layer
of fat underneath. This fatty layer makes the zebra sweat. Sweating
helps the zebra stay cool in the heat.
The Grevy's zebra is the largest of its species. It stands between
140-150 centimetres at the shoulder and weighs up to 270 kilograms.
It has large, round ears, a short, bristly mane and tufted tail.
