There are three types of zebra species: the plains zebra, the mountain Zebra and Grévy'ss zebra. The plains zebra is the most common type and has 12 subspecies living in much of southern and eastern Africa.
The mountain zebra lives in southwest Africa and tends to have a sleek coat with a white belly and narrower stripes than the plains Zebra.
Grévy's zebra is the largest type, with a long, narrow head, making it appear rather mule-like. Grévy's zebra is the rarest species, and is classified as endangered.
Can you tell much of a difference between the three species of zebras? It's OK, we really can't either ;-)
