Full Answer

Zebras spend most of their time in herds to protect against predators. Their stripes make it more difficult for predators, such as lions, to pick out a single zebra to chase. Their unique patterns help zebras recognize each other in the herd. The lead male of the herd, known as a stallion, stays at the back of the herd to provide defense. If one zebra is attacked, many other zebras will circle around the wounded zebra to guard it from predators.
