If you didn't already know, there are three species of zebra: Grevy's zebra (the ones features in this puzzle), Plains zebra and Mountain zebra. They are primarily found in various regions of Africa and inhabit grasslands, savannas, and open woodlands. They are herbivores, primarily grazing on grasses and sometimes leaves and shrubs. Zebras are best known for their striking black and white striped patterns. The exact purpose of zebras' stripes has been the subject of scientific study and debate. While the definitive answer is still not entirely clear, several theories exist. Some theories say that they are used for camouflage, some for thermoregulation and others for protection from insects. An interesting fact is that, just like human fingerprints, each zebra's stripe pattern is unique to the individual. // Image Credit: Mehgan Murphy, Smithsonian's National Zoo

Pelicans are among the heaviest of flying birds. They use thermals for soaring to heights of 3000 m or more, combined both with gliding and with flapping flight in V formation, to travel distances of up to 150 km to feeding areas. Pelicans also fly low over stretches of water, using a phenomenon known as ground effect to reduce drag and increase lift. This helps them save substantial amounts of energy while flying.
