With their distinctive black and white stripes, long legs and ability to run at high speeds, zebras are a symbol of wilderness and conservation throughout the world. Unlike other hoofed mammals, zebras and their horse relatives have only one toe on each foot. The mountain zebra is distinguished from other zebras by having a fold of skin, called a dewlap, on their throat. They occur in South Africa and are threatened by hunting and habitat loss.
