    Grevy's Zebra (Imperial Zebra)



    Grevy's Zebra (Equus grevyi), sometimes known as the Imperial Zebra, is the largest species of Zebra. It is found in the wild in Kenya and Ethiopia. Compared to other Zebras, it is tall, has large ears, and its stripes are narrower. The species is named after Jules Grevy, a president of France, who, in the 1880s, was given one by the government of Abyssinia. In certain regions of Kenya, the plains zebras and Grevy's zebras coexist. Grevy's zebra was the first zebra to be discovered by the Europeans and was used by the ancient Romans in circuses.
