Grevy’s Zebra

Equus grevyi


Equidae, the horse family

Conservation Status

Endangered, IUCN.


East Africa; Northern Kenya, Somalia and eastern Ethiopia.


Dry savanna country.


It is widely believed that this zebra was the famed “Hippotigris” (horse-tiger) of the Roman circus. The first specimens known to the scientific world were named for President Grevy of France, so although the species may have been new to science, it was known to earlier Europeans.
Due to heavy storm erosion, our hiking trails will be closed until further notice. The Zoo is still open.
