Are they black with white stripes or white with black stripes?

Who knows? What we do know is you can adopt one today. There’s no better way to say ‘thank you’, ‘I love you’ or ‘happy birthday’ than by giving the gift of an animal adoption.

How do I adopt a zebra?

Just click buy now and choose if you’d like a bronze, silver or gold adoption. You can adopt a zebra for yourself or for someone special and we’ll also send a special gift message along with your zebra in your adoption pack.

Your zebra adoption will last for 12 months, and 10% of the profit will help raise money for our conservation partners. Which means you’ll feel good about giving too.

Adopt a zebra from Folly Farm – and get a zebra stripy soft top to love and keep!

Schools and group organisations can also purchase our adoption packages. Please call the office on 01834 812731 to make arrangements.

Fun facts about zebra

  • Zebra stripes are like fingerprints…each individual pattern is unlike any other.
  • When attacked, they band together to form a protective semi-circular shield around the wounded.
  • The mane on a Chapman’s zebra sticks upright and doesn’t flow over the neck like a domestic horse.
  • And finally…why are zebras terrible at colouring in competitions? Because they can never stay between the lions!

Need to know

We only send our adoption packs to addresses with a UK postcode and the cost of postage is included in the price of an adoption.


As a personalised product, animal adoption packs are non-refundable, non-exchangeable and not for resale. If your gift pack arrives damaged, if there is a mistake on the adoption certificate or if the wrong item has been sent, then please email us photos and we’ll send a replacement item.

Our adoptions last 12 months and are for the species rather than a specific, named animal.

You can read our full animal adoption terms and conditions here.
