This is a bum of a zebra belonging to the Burchell’s species, one of only three species of zebras extant – the plains zebra, including the Burchell’s zebra found here in Etosha; the mountain zebra, including Hartmann’s mountain zebra found in north-western Namibia; and the more distantly related Grévy’s zebra found in Kenya and Ethiopia.
