Chapman’s Zebra

Chapman’s Zebra

I shot this stunning chap in Zurich.

The Chapman’s Zebra is a sub-species of the plains Zebra. These chaps are distinguished by stripes on the lower halves of the legs, which break up into many irregular brown spots. When foals are born they have brown stripes and in some cases adults do not develop the black colouration in their fur and keep their brown stripes. To that extent, a black and white image doesn’t really do justice to this fine fellow.
