Joe the Zebra

Chief Zebra

Did you know that a zebra’s stripes are as unique as our fingerprints? We found that out the hard way while sitting under a hot South Africa sun. You see … we own a zebra. His name is Joe. After hours of looking for him in a herd of thirty, we realized something powerful: getting one zebra to stand out in a herd is a lot like getting one person to stand out in a crowd. It’s tough! The great news is, while our zebra cannot change his stripes, you can! Let us show you how. Zebra FAQs
