Zebra Traits and Symbolism
This zebra is a member of the horse family but it lives in the wild and roams in herds. Sadly, their numbers are declining as their habitat is shrinking. The most endangered species is the Grevy’s Zebra, found only in northern Kenya and Ethiopia.
Although their black and white stripes make them easily recognisable from other animals, every zebra has a unique pattern. This is akin to each giraffe’s different spot patterns, or human fingerprints. Some scientists believe that zebras may be able to identify one another by their stripe pattern. The stripe “camouflage” may also assist as a defence mechanism by confusing predators without colour vision. It makes it difficult to isolate a target when zebras are bunched up together, causing predators to hesitate.
Zebras are highly social and develop a strong sense of community and safety by staying in large groups. However, they also value their freedom. This is partly evidenced by their resisted attempts to be domesticated and refusal to be confined. Indeed, the zebra salutes your free-spirited nature and shuns any attempts to be dominated.
May the zebra teach you the value of partnership and creating strong bonds within your community. This serves to achieve systems of support and security. At the same time, maintain your sense of self. Wear this with the Zebra Gold Plated Earrings to create a unique look that highlights your individuality within the herd.
