Crawshay's Zebra is a sub-species of the more common Burchill's Zebra, and is only found in Zambia, around the Luangwa Valley area.

The markings are closer together, giving a more "graphic" appearance, and it lacks the brown shadow stripes often seen between the black stripes of the Burchill's Zebra. Also, the white stripes in the mane tend to be more prominent.

In V4 and V5 I've added zebras from Kenya and Tanzania to show the difference.
(The zebra in V4 escaped!)

Beautiful specimen ! Do not tolerate dogs - we walked our dogs once when two Zebra who escaped from a nearby reserve chased us - scary experience Smile

I am glad the zebra in V4 escaped but as a picture telling a story I choose this one today but having said that I like the whole set, such beautiful animals

I agree it was good news for the zebra on this occasion.....but looking at the other side of the coin, it meant there were three very hungry cheetahs who hadn't eaten for days.....life is never very simple!

Thank you for your award, it's greatly appreciated.

Roger.

v4 is a great action shot! The adrenaline must have been going watching this! We witnessed a leopard killing an impala at night - one of the scariest things I've seen!
