Hunting and competition from livestock have greatly decreased their population. Because of the population's small size, environmental hazards, such as drought, are capable of affecting the entire species.
Plains zebras are much more numerous and have a healthy population. Nevertheless, they too have been reduced by hunting and loss of habitat to farming.
Zebras have been the subject of African folk tales which tell how they got their stripes. According to a San folk tale of Namibia , the zebra was once all white, but acquired its black stripes after a fight with a baboon over a waterhole.
After kicking the baboon so hard, the zebra lost his balance and tripped over a fire, and the fire sticks left scorch marks all over his white coat. Zebras are a popular subject in art. When depicted in movies and cartoons, zebras are most often miscellaneous characters, but have had some starring roles, notably in Madagascar , Racing Stripes and Khumba. Zebras also serve as mascots and symbols for products and corporations, notably Zebra Technologies and Fruit Stripe gum as well as Investec.

ZEBRA is the story of the love between two young people of totally divergent backgrounds: a young Jewish writer with great faith and a low threshold of pain, and a dynamic Latino woman who has very little trouble identifying what she wants and even less in securing it. It is the story of an old man who dreams cinemascopic dreams in Dolby sound and who wants little more than to be a part of something more creative than blackjack hustling before he dies. It is the interweaving of two inept but dedicated con artists determined to finally make that last big score that will allow them to rest for the first time in their treadmill existances.
ZEBRA tells how these mismatched and unlikely characters actually bilk a casino out of the seed money necessary to start up a motion picture company, how they attempt to con each other out of the bankroll, and how they finally end up in Hollywood where it is walk the walk time.
