The Schleich figures are modelled with attention to detail, hand-painted with care, and provide educationally valuable playtime. Zebras live in the African savannah and belong to the horse family. Each zebra has a unique fur coat pattern consisting of black and white stripes. Even its mane is striped. The pattern provides camouflage, confuses predators, protects against mosquitoes, makes the heat more bearable, and helps the animals to recognise each other.
Fun Fact: Zebras have a protruding mane, as it conceals a supporting layer of fat under it.
