Seeing Double by Heatherzart Seeing Double by Heatherzart
16" x 20"
Scratchboard and Ink

These are Grevy's Zebras that live in the Out of Africa Wildlife Park in Camp Verde, Arizona. It's a privately run zoo that offers some really interesting adventures including feeding a giraffe carrots from your mouth and watching the 'Predator Feed' where they toss whole chickens (not live) into the cat enclosures. The one thing they do NOT let you do is get anywhere near the zebras. These two followed our bus (with no windows!) on the safari and tried their best to look sweet and horse-like but the large photo at the front of the bus showing a zebra bearing it's big teeth was a constant reminder not to be fooled by them. I thought this picture captured their dual nature perfectly.

Thanks so much for the DD! I honestly didn't expect it with this one since it's my least favorite and the file was pretty bad but I'm very grateful none the less. Your support means a lot! Here is the new file, the detail is much better.

An incredible scratchboard piece, you can almost feel the texture of the zebras fur in this work of art just by looking at it. Zebras by *Heatherzart ( Featured by Astralseed )
