About the Zebra:

The Zebra (Equus burchellii), known for their black and white stripes, are a part of the horse family. There are 3 types of Zebra: the Plains Zebra, the Grevys Zebra and the Mountain Zebra. Many people are familiar with Zebras because of their unique stripes.

These stripes are used as camouflage, presumably. They have very strong legs and predators are sure to be kicked. The zebras blend into one another to confuse predators. They are very social and therefore, graze together and even groom one another.

Zebra Habitat:

Zebras are constantly on the go, searching for new grazing areas and watering holes, and travel with other grazers such as Wildebeest. Zebras live in small family groups, consisting of the adult males and females and their offspring. They feed on grasses and stems and are water dependent.

Taxidermy (Hunting Zebra):

Thorough preparation is the key factor to ensuring a high-quality final product. All hides are tanned and oiled using the world’s very best available chemicals and processes to ensure permanence and longevity.

Forms are selected to ensure the best fit and posture will be altered to suit you, the client’s preference without additional cost. Natural habitat bases are custom-made for full mount trophies without additional cost.

Only the finest materials and 30 years of professional experience are used in defining your trophies in a whole new way. The final trophies are almost Life-Formed. When the restoration is required, every effort is made to repair cuts and abrasions, and to minimise bullet damage. Natural scarring is kept unless otherwise requested.
