Zebras inhabit open, grassy plains or well-grassed woodlands. Zebras can either be sedentary or migratory; their lifestyle is dependent on the availability of food. In seasonally dry areas like the Serengeti of Tanzania, families of plains zebra gather to form large herds that migrate in search of food.
