Fast Facts: Zebra (Part 3)

Welcome to Fast Facts with Reasons for Hope!

I’m Carl Kerby.

Zebras are known for their stripes, but God has equipped them with other self- defense tools as well. Their eyes are perfectly located on the side of their head for a wide view of their surroundings. They can easily scan the savannah for predators with binocular vision to see depth and even night vision.

Their ears are cupped and on the top of their heads. They can move them in any direction and are even able to use them to communicate.

The ever-watchful zebra will alert the herd with a quick high-pitched sound, and if under attack, they will fight back with vicious piercing bites and powerful kicks.

Within hours of birth, the zebra young are up and running, sometimes traveling at 55 miles-per-hour to escape predators.

But their biggest strength is sticking together, which we will learn about in the next Fast Facts with Reasons for Hope. Until then … stay bold!
