Description: There are six subspecies of plains zebra: Maneless Zebra, Grant’s Zebra, Crawshay’s Zebra, Selous Zebra, Chapman’s Zebra and Damara Zebra.
A muscular horse-like animal with a relatively short neck and sturdy legs. The stripes are subject to much regional and individual variation.

Sex Determination: Stallions normally has a heavier head but are stockier in the body. Mares have a thick black line between the back legs under the tail where the genitals are.
Trophy Assesment: Depending on preference, sometimes mares will be targeted for a flawless skin and stallions if one wish to do a mount, if one wishes to show the heavy head and muscular neck.
Shot Placement: Broadside shot is normally quite easy as the stripes form a triangle on the shoulder which serves as a natural target. A frontal shot is also a very effective shot.
