New Zebra Subspecies Discovered!!!

Posted by: Leopard Mountain Lodge

A new subspecies of Zebra found at Leopard Mountain! The Mammal Research Institute in Pretoria has recently published a paper on a new subspecies of Burchell’s Zebra discovered at Leopard Mountain. This subspecies is recognisable by its distinctive colour pattern variation. The new subspecies has been named Equus Stultus Aprilis and is easily discernible from the common black striped Burchell’s Zebra by its distinctive white stripes. Please let us know if you spot this remarkable animal on the game drives.
