Africa’s Z — Zebra
What African creature is more famous that the zebra?
Africa’s wildlife alone ranges all the way from “a” to “z.” Aardvarks are "burrowing mammals (Orycteropus afer) of southern Africa, with a stocky, hairy body, large ears, a long tubular snout, and powerful digging claws.”
Further down the list are lemurs ("small arboreal, mostly nocturnal primates chiefly of the family Lemuridae of Madagascar and adjacent islands, having large eyes, a long slim muzzle, and a long tail").
And so at last, to Zebra ("swift, wild, horse like African mammals of the genus Equus, having distinctive overall markings of alternating white and black or brown stripes").
