Sometimes, zebras are born with some strange stripe patterns.  These zebras are called black zebras. These photos all illustrate the variety possible in the stripes or, in the bottom photo, “spots” of the zebra.

Melanistic zebras aren& all-black, though on occasion they come close. Instead, the mutation acts on the width of the black stripes, crowding out the white .

The plains zebra (Equus quagga, subspecies Grant's zebra pictured) is the most common and geographically widespread species of zebra.
