Male and female zebras are very similar in appearance. Shoulder height is about 1.4 meters. Males usually have thicker necks than females. Burchell’s zebras can be distinguished from mountain zebras by the possession of “shadow stripes” on the back and hindquarters, and the absence of a dewlap. No two zebras have identical striping patterns, a fact which makes individual identification convenient.
