Plains zebras are normally peaceful plant-eaters, but they aren’t afraid to defend themselves from the dangerous predators of the African savanna. Readers will find out how zebras fend off lions and other enemies and how their beautiful stripes can help them avoid danger. They will also learn how zebras reproduce and raise their young and why they need to eat large amounts of food.
