As you may have guessed, Zebras are our spirit animals. This unique animal inspired us to create Spirit Animal Crackers in the first place and helped mold the ethos of our brand. Zebras are more than just a fun animal to look at, they are a fearless, loyal, stunning breed who’s sheer appearance is a scientific marvel. We are so proud to be named after these exotic beauties. Join us in celebrating International Zebra Day and keep reading to find out why they’re so special.
Travel in packs- Zebras are very social animals. A harem can have as many as 30 zebras, often predominantly female. They sleep together, standing up, in large groups to ward off predators.
Loyal as hell- Zebras stick up for their harem. By traveling in large groups they can better protect themselves. If one of their own is attacked they will circle around and attempt to scare the intruder away with their teeth and hooves.
Owl-like senses- They have amazing vision and hearing which helps them sense danger from afar.
Speed demons- Zebras can run up to 35 miles per hour! A baby will start walking in 20 minutes and running within an hour.
Marvels- The annual 1,800-mile migration of zebras, blue wildebeest and other antelope between the Serengeti in Tanzania and Kenya’s Masai Mara is one of the world’s most extraordinary phenomenons.
Chatterboxes- Zebra’s are a noisy bunch- maybe that’s why we connect with them! They communicate, rather loudly, through barks and snorts. They also use their voices- and a swift kick- to scare off predators.
Unique- Each zebra’s stripes are as unique as a human fingerprint. It’s how zebras identify each other, confuse predators, and keep cool. In case you were wondering, zebras are black with white stripes on top!
At Good Zebra we try to channel our spirit animal every day. We don’t freeze in danger, prefer to travel by harem, are noisy, tend to communal groom, and sleep on our toes. Today, and everyday, be as fearless as a zebra.
