This Orphaned African Zebra Was Luckily Rescued, But The People Caring For Him Have To Wear A Special Outfit For This Reason

“Little Diria – named after the ranch where he was rescued – arrived into our care at the end of February, fluffy and sporting brown and white stripes (Zebras are famous for their black and white striped appearance, however when they are born they are in brown and white),” they went on to say.

“Since then we have provided Diria with the constant company (and milk feeds) he would have received from his mother, with our keepers even wearing a specially made coat when they are caring for him.”

“Zebra foals imprint on their mother’s striped pattern and the coat allows Diria to imprint as nature intended, without him becoming too attached to any one individual.”

“A technique we have successfully employed over the years with other rescued zebras, who are now living wild.”

“Diria is incredibly affectionate with his carers and, perhaps with the exception of his milk, loves nothing more than nuzzling into them as they comfortingly groom him.”

“With your support, we are proud to be in a position to help this baby boy after such a traumatic start to his life.”
