Hyped About Stripes

Zebra, Pacco

Zebras are members of the horse family known for their black and white stripes. Just like human fingerprints, each zebra’s stripe pattern is unique – no two are alike. Different zebra species have their own general pattern, from narrow to wide and black or brown. Stripes act as a type of protection for zebras. When zebras are grouped together, the stripes make it hard for a lion or leopard to pick out one zebra to chase.

In May 2019 Pacco, along with his friend Stuart, arrived at the Milwaukee County Zoo from the Hemker Park Zoo in Minnesota. These two plains zebras can be seen in the new Impala Plains mixed-species habitat that is part of the newly constructed Adventure Africa. They share their space with impala, grey-crowned cranes and ostriches.
