The Plains Zebra is a unique species of zebra found in the grasslands and savannas of Africa.

They are the most common type of zebra, and can be distinguished from other zebras by their wide stripes. Plains Zebras are very social animals, and live in herds of up to 100 individuals. They are grazers, and eat a wide variety of plants including grasses, leaves, flowers, and fruits.

Plains Zebras are preyed upon by lions, leopards, and hyenas, but they are also known to be fierce predators themselves, hunting down antelopes and gazelles.

Plains Zebras are an important part of the African ecosystem, and play a crucial role in the food web. They are important prey for predators, and also help to distribute seeds and fruits throughout the grasslands. They are graceful and beautiful animals, and their stripes are unique to each individual.
