An interesting observation on zebras -is this one a BAB?-
I got to visit a really great game park/zoo over the holidays and while I was there I noticed an interesting variation in the color of one of the zebras. I've been studying horse color genetics and I'm sure that zebras must be different, but doesn't this one look for all the world like a bad ass brown?:shock:
I thought I'd share these pictures I took because personally I find it fascinating. What do you guys think?
This is the Zebra in question, she is an adult and a part of the park's breeding program. The pictures are kind of dark but you can see that her nose is orange instead of black.
Now compare her to one of the other mares in the herd. See the difference?
Here are a couple of comparison shots:
(In this one she's in the far left corner)
If there is any similarity to horse genetics, she would be black based just like her friends but also with a brown gene, right?
Also, I just can't help but to share a picture of their adorable little filly. I'm pretty sure that she was a month old when I took this. She was all over the place! Hence the blurry-ness.
These pictures just make me want a Zebra all the more. I think they are the coolest little things!
(I know that doesn't help you)
I know, I love them too! I think they are possibly the cutest equines out there (besides my own horse, of course).
Can I get away with sharing another picture without this thread being moved out of color and genetics? The resident stallion zebra came over to the bus, looked up at the driver, and opened his mouth really wide. He was begging for zebra cookies!
Did you know that zebra stripes are different no 2 are the
also from what I know Zebras are unmanageable and can`t
but the are cute that`s for sure
Do you have any side on pics of her whole body?
Wouldn't it be awesome....
If Zebra's had fun colored stripes..like normal horse colors where the black stripes go....I want a varnish roan zebra or a bay pintaloosa zebra! LOL
You obviously never watched Racing Stripes..
that is only a movie
and rare to be able to ride a Zebra
