International Zebra Day is on 31 January 2022
The 31st January is International Zebra Day and a great chance to find out more about zebras!
There are three species of zebra, and apart from their distinctive black and white markings which make them easily recognisable, you may not know a lot about them, so the day is a good chance to find out more about them.
There's the Grevy Zebra, the Plains Zebra and the Mountain Zebra.
