Zebras

Today we learned many facts about zebras. 
We learned:

  1. That they have their own unique patterns of stripes, just as humans have their own unique pattern of fingerprints. 
  2. It's hard to tell where one zebra ends and another begins.
  3. They have powerful kicks with their hind legs.
  4. The main diet of zebras is grass. They also eat bark and leaves, as well as buds, fruit, and roots. They graze during the day, sticking together in herds.
  5. Within a herd, zebras tend to stay together in smaller family groups.
  6. As with horses, male zebras are called stallions, females are mares, and the young are called foals.
  7. As a zebra grazes, it uses its sharper front teeth to bite the grass, and then uses its duller back teeth to crush and grind.
  8. A group of zebras is called a herd. 
  9. Zebras live in parts of Africa.
  10. Zebras belong to the horse family. 
  11. Zebra noises include braying, barking, and snorting. 
  12. Zebras groom one another.
  13. A zebra's night vision is believed to be as good as an owl's.
Then the children made an adorable zebra.
