Egyptian zoo ‘paints donkey’ to look like zebra

Egyptian zoo ‘paints donkey’ to look like zebra

A zoo in Cairo is allegedly showing its true stripes by passing off painted donkeys as zebras.

He shared a picture of the "zebra" on Facebook and it went viral.

In July 2018, a student named Mahmoud Sarhan posted a photograph to social media of what was described as a zebra on display at Egypt's International Garden municipal park.

While different zebra species exhibit significant variability in size, stripe patterns, and snout colorings, their stripes typically do not smudge.

This is not the first time that a zoo has painted donkeys to look like zebras. He said there were two similarly-marked animals in the enclosure.

However, a veterinarian told news outlet Extranews that he concurred with the disgruntled student, pointing out that real zebras have black snouts, not striped ones.

Despite this, International Gardens park's director Mohamed Sultan has rebuffed any suggestion the animal is anything other than a zebra.

This particular "zebra" for example, lacked the distinctive mane and long ears associated with the African animal.

On first glance, the animal appeared to fit the bill, but a closer look revealed several inconsistencies and a slap-dash paint job.

In another case of animal trickery, a zoo in China annoyed visitors by trying to pass off a hairy dog as a lion in 2013.
