They resemble the horses having a white body with thick black stripes. When being chased by a predator, they run in a zig zag manner making it difficult to be caught. The group of zebras is often called zeal. Zebras have only one toe in each feet and they cannot see the orange color. They are very fast and can run upto 65kph which is enough to outrun the lions. Because of the white coat, they reject 70% of the incoming heat. They sleep while standing like the horses.
