Punda the Zebra

‘Punda the Zebra’ tells the story of a little foal, from its birth to the end of the annual great migration. Less than an hour after his birth, he knows how to run. When you are one of the weakest species in the Savannah, it’s a question of survival. Little Punda discovers the herd and the essential skill of learning to recognise his mother in the middle of a jungle of stripes. We follow him on one of the largest migrations in the animal kingdom.
