Now move down the page to explore a stunning, stripy zebra. He's trotting across the page to the right. Can you find his long, sticking up ears in the middle of the page near the right hand edge? They are white with pink insides. Move down and to the right to explore his smiling face. Like the antelope he has long eyelashes on his small eyes, pink rosy cheeks and a big beaming grin. Move left over his body. Can you feel the roughness along the top of his back? This is his short spiky mane.
