Everyone wonders how the zebra got its stripes, but isn't it more important to know why?  Scientists believe the combination of a zebras stripes and their herd mentality, help to camouflage them against the keen sense of their predators. When a hyena, lion or cheetah sees a herd of running zebra, they cannot zero in on one animal and thus find it difficult to acquire this prey. Zero in on these adorable papier mache zebras. They will not kick or bite and are safe to keep around the house.

  • Small Zebra measures 4-1/4” high x 2-3/4” wide x 3-1/4” deep
  • Large Zebra and Bank version measures 8-1/4” high x 5” wide x 5-1/4” deep
  • Zebras are sold seperately, but they look great when displayed in groups (and they prefer it too!)

Handmade in the Philippines and fair trade imported.
