Hartmann's mountain zebra (Equus zebra hartmannae) is a subspecies of the mountain zebra found in far south-western Angola and western Namibia.

Habitat and behaviour

Hartmann's mountain zebras prefer to live in small groups of 7-12 individuals. They are agile climbers and are able to live in arid conditions and steep mountainous country.[2]

Taxonomy

It has been argued that Hartmann's mountain zebra should be considered a separate species from the Cape mountain zebra,[3] but this is not supported by genetic evidence (see Mountain zebra#Taxonomy). Consequently, it is no longer considered a separate species in Mammal Species of the World.[4] 2005.
