The zebra is an animal from central and southern Africa. It’s amember of the horse family. It’s very recognisable thanks to its black and white stripes. Apparently, the original species were more grey than black.
The zebra has made us dream for a very long time. It’s one of the main symbols of the African continent. It has been present in zoos for many years and it’s very recognisable on old black and white postcards. What’s more, the zebra also makes for a good illustration subject. There are three different zebra species: Burchell’s zebra or plains zebra, the mountain zebra and Grevy’s zebra, which is the largest and most common one!
The global population is 800,000 and a zebra can live up to 40 years. We have over 1,500 postcards featuring this strange African animal. Come and discover them!
