Life's no work and all play for a zebra foal romping through the dry grass in Kenya's Masai Mara National Reserve. "Basically they'll run, sleep, suckle, run, sleep, suckle, repeating the process over and over," says zebra researcher Jessica Rogers of the Wildlife Conservation Society. "They're like children until about six months of age." Mothers and foals form tight bonds, communicating by sight, smell, and sound.
