These are plains zebras. Wider stripes, all the way around.
Incidentally, the stripes are for "disruptive coloration."
When the lions attack the herd, they all run different
directions, and the stripes make it hard to see where
one zebra ends and the next starts. Hence, you'll
often see zebras all lined up doing the same thing,
facing the same direction, drinking in rows, things
This set includes some of my favorite shots, which
I see wound up in the directory twice somehow.
Kenya and Tanzania, Summer 2000.
Scanned from 6x4 prints of 35mm film
with a not-too-good scanner.
Released to the Public Domain,
but I would appriciate hearing about
commercial use of the photos.
