Identification
Adult mountain zebras measure between 82 and 102 inches in length. They can weigh an average of 600 pounds. Hartmann's mountain zebras are the only zebra species with a dewlap – a fold of skin under the throat. Their widest stripes can be seen on the upper hind legs, and the stripes continue down all the way to the hooves.

Diet
They are grazers that primarily feed on grass and browse.

Reproduction & Lifespan
Zebras reach sexual maturity after 2 years. Mating occurs year round. The gestation period is approximately 12 months and bears one foal. The average lifespan of a mountain zebra is 20 years in the wild, and 30 years in captivity.
