Fast Facts: Zebra (Part 5)

Welcome to Fast Facts with Reasons for Hope!

I’m Carl Kerby. We’ve been reading between the lines … or between the stripes … about the fascinating zebra.

Did you know that the zebra migrates farther than any other African mammal? Since a zebra cannot go more than 5 days without water, it will travel more than 300 miles to greener pastures when the dry season comes.

A zebra’s teeth never stops growing, so its ability to eat or bite is not hindered.

Once they are settled into their rainy-season homes, it’s peak time to welcome foals. Mom will sneak off by herself to give birth, and typically within 20 minutes the 70-pound foal is standing. A few days later, the two of them will rejoin the herd.

These striped, social, and sassy equids are a perfect reminder of how God has a purpose in each design feature of His creation.

Check back with our next Fast Facts with Reasons for Hope to learn more. Until then … stay bold!
