ZEBRA Foal
The Chambers Dictionary of Etymology states that the word zebra was  found in Portuguese and Spanish, meaning “wild ass”, before the  Portuguese applied it to zebras in the 1500’s.
Although zebra species may have overlapping ranges, they do not interbreed
Their stripes  come in different patterns unique to each individual.
 They are  generally social animals that live in small harems to large herds. 
Unlike their closest relatives, horses and asses, zebras have never been truly domesticated.
