It is very interesting . Even the scientists are in disagreement about some of the classifications.

Taken at Vlei Pan, Madikwe, on our way out of the reserve. It was around midday and the waterhole was heaving. Just about every animal imaginable put in an appearance.

Fantastic light there at ManaPools Morkel.

This is Etosha, near Okaukuejo. The tattoo artist clearly fell asleep! I believe he's been spotted (?) a few times.

The second shot is Rietvlkei Dam near Pretoria, at sunrise.

@@JohnT that's a very unusual zebra. Do you know more about it?

I was going to ask the same Matt! I have never seen a zebra like that before.

Is it a different kind or just a reeeaally massive "birth mark" of some sort?....

Seems a regular thing in Etosha - check out the foal in my Etosha sunrise shot higher up in the thread - looks the same!

Think it's just a genetic thing in a certain line of zebras. Pigmentation variation.

I can only imagine that, similar to the one that JD5000 posted, this is some sort of genetic throw back, perhaps similar to what causes albino specimens in other species.

All very interesting! I wonder if they have more difficult surviving in the wild... Predators are very clever and will go for weaker pray - I wonder if they see this as a weakness. Nature continues to fascinate!
