      Hi Kim! You are quite correct. The Mountain Zebra is smaller than the Burchell’s, or Plains, Zebra, and has a red tinge to the nose, a small dewlap beneath the throat, a grid iron pattern on its back at the base of the tail, stripes that don’t go all the way around the belly, and no shadow stripes like the Plains Zebra does.
