Grant’s zebra is the smallest of six subspecies of the plains zebra. This subspecies represents the zebra form of the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem.
There are more Grant’s zebras in the wild than any other species or subspecies of zebras. Unlike Grevy and mountain zebras, they are not endangered. However, recent civil wars and political conflicts in the African countries near their habitats have caused regional extinction. Zebra are also killed for their coats or to eliminate competition with domestic livestock.
