Depicted are two fighting Gevy’s zebra stallions. Serious fighting may occur when one zebra stallion challenges the head stallion of a particular herd. The winner will become the head stallion, driving the loser away.

Zebras move quickly for their large size, reaching a top speed of 40 mph, as compared to racehorses, who can reach a top speed of 45 mph after 1/8th of a mile. Zebras are herbivores and graze on grasses with their blunt teeth that are designed for snipping and grinding that particular kind of vegetation. Their lifespan can reach 40 years in captivity.

Zebras look a lot like our domestic horses, the differences of course being their black-and-white striped fur, their short and erect manes, and the ends of their tails are simply tufted with hair. It is believed that their black-and-white striped fur helps dissipate the sun’s heat. The zebra’s predators are most active at dusk, and the stripes will confuse the outline of the zebra’s body at this time and distort their true distance from the predator. The stripe patterns on a zebra are also like fingerprints in humans: no two are alike.

There are three main species of zebra: Burchell’s, Gevy’s zebra, and the Equus zebra.

Burchell’s zebras are the most widespread, living in East Africa. Burchell’s are also known as the common or plains zebra. Burchell’s zebras can reach a height of 50 inches at the shoulders and can weigh up to 550 pounds.

Gevy’s zebras, in contrast, are the largest zebra, weighing up to 990 pounds and can reach a height of 60 inches at the shoulders. Gevy’s zebras can be found mostly in northern Kenya. Gevy’s zebras were named after a French president back in the late 1800s, Jules Gevy, who received a zebra as a gift.

The Equus zebra, or mountain zebra, is found in southern and southwestern Africa. It is moderate in size, weighing up to 820 pounds and reaching a height of 59 inches at their shoulders.

The gestation period for zebras ranges from 12 to 13 months. When a foal is born, the mother must segregate it from the herd for about 2 or 3 days so that the foal can learn to recognize its mother by sight and smell. The foals are weaned at approximately 10 months of age.

Zebras are pack animals, running in herds. They flourish under strong bonds that last a lifetime. As an example, if a family member becomes separated, the rest of the family will tirelessly search for the missing individual until they are found. And the whole pack will adjust its traveling pace to accommodate the weak and/or elderly.

A zebra’s predators include lions, hyenas, hunting dogs, leopards, and cheetahs. Predators of zebras will face fierce opposition when attacking an individual or group of zebras. The family group of zebras will form a semicircle, facing the predator, and will bite or kick if confronted further. Even if an individual zebra becomes injured, the rest of the group will encircle it to prevent any further attack.

Elouise Taylor - Wildart Gallery Artist

Born September 17, 1923, in the San Francisco area, she is the daughter of Dr. Charles Vincent Taylor, Dean of Biological Sciences at Stanford University. Elouise studied ballet from age 5 to age 17, and shortly thereafter joined Sonja Henie Hollywood Ice Review, a career (including movies) lasting more than a decade.

Some of her work displayed at www.wildartgallery.com (a display-only site) illustrates the artistic rendering of Olympic and professional ice skaters at work. The World Figure Skating Hall of Fame acquired and proudly displays an original oil portrait by Elouise Taylor of Sonja Henie, with whom Elouise skated professionally on tour for ten years. To this day, Elouise skates as gracefully as ever.

After raising three beautiful children, she has continued professionally as an artist specializing in wildlife, nature scenes, and portraiture. Still working full time, Elouise continues to bless us with many fine works, some of which appear at this site.

Elouise appreciates the art of motion and balance. This synergism of her knowledge of an animal's habits with the appreciation of its soul is beautifully expressed in her paintings.
