Our Mascots: Grevy’s Zebras
Grevy’s Zebras AKA Imperial Zebras are the largest zebras on the planet and were named after Jules Grevy, a president of France in the nineteenth century who was presented with one of his namesakes by the government of Abysinnia. There are only about 2,500 of this species left in the wild, so viewing this trio was a special moment. The zebra in the foreground must have some super model in him or her, as it seemed to be striking poses as I was triggering the camera. These striped beauties live at The Living Desert, Palm Desert, California.
If you know Judy and I, you know why these animals are our mascots.
