A 3d jigsaw puzzle by Wrebbit depicting a zebra and her baby. 31 Jumbo Foam Pieces designed specifically for kids aged 4 and up.|
The sun makes its languid rise over the African savannah. Time to
wash up. Zaeli licks clean her colt's black-and-white striped coat.
Her own coat looks very much like her colt's, Zazouk's, but it is
not altogether identical. No two zebras' stripe patterns are alike.
Zazouk can easily spot his mother, even when galloping among a herd
of zebras. He does not need to actually see her. He just follows her
scent - and he never gets lost.
- "Hello Lankia, our giraffe friend!"
Zebras love the company of giraffes, often mixing with them to graze
among the swaying grasslands or to feast on acacia shrubs and trees.
Thanks to their towering necks, giraffes can spot danger more
quickly. If an enemy on the prowl approaches, they sound the alarm
so the herd can escape. Zebras are hard to catch. They can run at
speeds equal to that of a car on the highway. Colts are swift, too.
Zazouk learned to gallop as a foal, merely hours after his, birth.
Zazouk can also conceal himself from the enemy by hiding behind
bushes, his stripes and colors blending right in with the
surrounding thicket. Zazouk remains completely still until his
mother signals there is no more danger.
Once calm is restored, the zebras take to the marsh for a frolicsome
swim. And like their friends, the elephants, they then roll in the
dust to protect their skin from insects, heat and wind.
Once the our sets behind the hills, our young, striped, horse-like
friends settle down to dream about more adventures in brush country.
