The Grévy's Zebra was completed on 12.15.2013. I've drawn some of the sub-species of zebra - including the Grant's Zebra and Mountain Zebra - but when I started working with a conservation group dedicated to the preservation of the world endangered equines - the group coordinator suggest the Grévy's Zebra. When I came across an excellent photo by Tambako the Jaguar (who let me use the image for reference) I created this drawing.
The Grévy's Zebra - also called the Imperial Zebra, is the largest living wild horse of the three species of zebra. It is also the most endangered and largest. The horse is named after Jules Grévy (President of the French Third Republic and one of the leaders of the Opportunist Republicans faction) It is the sole extant member of the subgenus Dolichohippus. The Grévy's zebra is found in Kenya and Ethiopia. Compared with other zebras, it is tall, has large ears, and its stripes are narrower. The Grévy's zebra lives in semi-arid grasslands where it feeds on grasses, legumes, and browse; it can survive up to five days without water. It differs from the other zebra species in that it does not live in harems and has few long-lasting social bonds. Male territoriality and mother–foal relationships form the basis of the social system of the Grévy's zebra.<
