  1. Ha, I’ve never read that quote until now. It’s the perfect statement for your little polka-dotted friend. Love it.

  2. Madhu, I’m glad we got to see this thanks to your keen eye! Zebras are such gorgeous creatures – they’ve been my sister’s favourite since a very young age.

  3. Unique! Hopefully it doesn’t get excluded or something. But I guess the difference isn’t big enough. Great capture!

  4. He is beautiful! I am just learning how to Zentangle and this looks like an interesting pattern! πŸ™‚

  5. well I always heard that no two zebras had there same spots – and this is more proof – and I love the grazing feel πŸ™‚

  6. How unusual! Zebras wee the animal I picked to study and observe during my college zoology class. It took me a while to identify each one by their unique stripes. They really are all so different, but I never saw any with spots!

  7. I have painted them many times – No two are the same, but first time I’ve seen a spotted one πŸ™‚

  8. This must be a rare and unusual sighting, Madhu. I have never seen dots before. You were in the right place at the right time.

    1. Thank you Dina. She was gorgeous in her semi-dappled coat. Her calf seems to have turned out ‘normal’. Or boring? πŸ™‚

    1. Ha, especially a female of the species!! Not sure it is a good thing to ‘stand out’ in the wild though πŸ™‚

  9. Beautifully captured! The little dots on the tops makes this zebra look so unique πŸ™‚ I have never seen this type of zebra before πŸ™‚

    1. I searched online and only found only one other report from the recent past Indah! Guessing it is pretty rare πŸ™‚

  10. Indeed it is strange but strange are the ways of nature…it keeps us guessing and keep us surprising with its uniqueness..
