Grévy's zebra foal with mother
Samburu National Reserve, Kenya
"Grévy's zebras give birth to a single foal after a variable but exceptionally long gestation period of about 400 days. Mothers return to very localised birthing areas that appear to be traditional. The new foal, as shown here, has a mane running from forehead to tail which is shed as the foal grows up. The brown and white baby colouring darkens first on the neck and ears and a woolly coat then gives way to a sleek black and white one."
