Photographer's Note

Information about Etosha National Park you can find under my first posted photo titled Etosha National Park #1.

Zebra
Etosha National Park has a thriving population of two separate species: Hartmann's Zebra and Burchell's Zebra. The last one are the more common with about 20,000 in the park. Vast herds of zebra are often seen congregating around waterholes in the early morning and late afternoon. Wherever you see zebra, lions are never far behind. The zebra is the lion's favorite prey species. In Etosha National Park, zebra breed year-around, so there is a constant pitter-patter of tiny feet to replenish the herds. If one younger is lost, zebra mares can conceive another one almost immediately. Their gestation period is 11 months and one foal isl born at a time.
