Full Answer

The plains zebra lives in grasslands and woodlands, and it is the most abundant zebra species. Plains zebras migrate up to 1,800 miles to find food. Mountain zebras inhabit slopes and plateaus of mountains at elevations of up to 6,500 feet. These mountain zebras migrate to lower elevations in winter. Grevy's zebras are found in semi-desert areas with year-round water sources. The Grevy's zebra is the least populous because they are hunted for their skins and as food.
