So...is it WHITE with BLACK stripes, or the other way around?
Our Plastic Zebra Action Figure
Made of light-weight hollow plastic, this zebra action figure has movable legs and head (the head moves forward and back). It measures 3 inches in length, not including the tail. Although it is sturdy, the pieces could possibly come loose so this toy is NOT recommended for very small children. It makes a nice addition to your equine collection, is great for school projects, dioramas, as a toy for older kids or grown-ups, party favors, etc. To see our entire collection of action figures, check out our Animal Action Figures page.
The three species of these striped mammals are found only in Africa. The Grevy's zebra (Equus grevyi), which is found in Northern Kenya, and the mountain zebra (Equus zebra), which inhabits the mountains of Southern and Southwestern Africa, are endangered. Although the Plains zebra (Equus quagga) is not endangered, the population of this East Africa native is declining. Zebras are smaller in size than horses and greatly resemble the wild ass in habitat - woodlands to open plains - and form - a short, erect mane, large ears, and a tufted tail. The stripes, which distinguish this animal from other members of the horse family, serve as protective coloration in its natural habitat. Like the giraffe, each zebra's markings are as unique as a person's finger prints. The chief enemies of the zebra are lions and hunters who kill zebras for their meat and hide.
