Hartmann's mountain zebra, Equus zebra hartmannae, is a subspecies of the mountain zebra found in far south-western Angola and western Namibia. Hartmann's mountain zebras prefer to live in small groups of 7-12 individuals. They are agile climbers and are able to live in arid conditions and steep mountainous country.
It has been argued that Hartmann's mountain zebra should be considered a separate species from the Cape Mountain Zebra, but this is not supported by genetic evidence (see Taxonomy of the Mountain zebra). Consequently, it was "only" considered a subspecies in Mammal Species of the World.
