These are a better looking zebra than the common zebra. Their stripes are narrower and they tend to look more slender and cool. Plus, I really like their ears. That is the easiest way to tell a zebra from a horse painted like a zebra. Zebra are not strong enough to carry people. So next time you see Sheena, realize that she is riding a horse with black and white stripes painted on it. To tell the two types of zebra apart in discussions, we pronounced the grevy zebra as American's do (with a hard Z like in Zoo).
