In stark contrast to Chloe the Sloth (see previous post), there was one zebra at Como Zoo who couldn’t stand still. Certainly not long enough for me to take a decent picture.

Because it was raining, the zebras and giraffes were indoors. One zebra was pacing in an enclosure on one side of the ruminants building, periodically stopping to sniff at a doorway covered with plywood. On the other side of the building were two other zebras. I suspect they were on the other side of the plywood door from Hyper Zebra.

Do you know how hard it is to take a clear picture of a zebra, let alone a zebra that continues to move? I tried. Oh, how I tried! Here are some of the results. Note the eye-woggling effect that occurs because of the zebra’s stripes.
