The Mountain Zebra is the rarest of zebra species and is recognized by its narrower, but more numerous stripes and gridiron pattern on the top of its rump. Also, it has a dewlap on the underside of its neck that is found on no other zebra. The zebras travel in small "bands"consisting of a male and one to five females with their young. The male is an active leader of the group, chasing away challengers and guarding the rear in times of danger as a mare leads the group away. The Mountain Zebra live in the hills and mountains of South Africa and grow to stand 42 inches at the shoulder and weigh almost 820 pounds. The zebra is a member of the order Perissodactyla in the family Equidae, and its scientific name is Equus zebra
