The drawing of the Mountain Zebra and young was completed on 6.15.2012. I had done a drawing of a Grant's Zebras sparing some years ago, and thought it was time to add another of these wonderful animals to the image library. This time around, I decided on the endangered Mountain Zebra. I found a great photo taken by Christoph Anton Mitterer who was kind enough to let me use it as reference to create the illustration.
The Mountain Zebras is an endangered equine native to the mountain slopes, open grasslands, woodlands of south-western Angola, Namibia and South Africa. There are two known subspecies: the Harmann's Mountain Zebra and Cape Mountain Zebra (the drawing is of the Harmann's) but there is some discussion that these zebras should be considered to be separate species. These large horses have a body length (including heads) of 6.9 to 8.9 feet) (2.1 to 2.7 meters). Shoulder height ranges from 3.6-4.9 feet) (1.1 to 1.5 meters.) Weight is usually about 450-820 pounds (204 to 372 kilograms.) These animal were once common in their native areas, but due to habitat loss and poaching for their hides they are now considered vulnerable by conservation groups.
