Punda Milia Silver Plated Zebra Necklace



Punda Milia, the Swahili name for the zebra, is a member of the horse family but it lives in the wild and roams in herds. Sadly, their numbers are declining as their habitat is shrinking. The most endangered species is the Grevy’s Zebra, found only in northern Kenya and Ethiopia.

Although their black and white stripes make them easily recognisable from other animals, every zebra has a unique pattern, just like human fingerprints. Some scientists believe that zebras may be able to identify one another by their stripe pattern. The stripe “camouflage” may also assist as a defence mechanism by confusing predators without colour vision. It makes it difficult to isolate a target to attack when they are bunched up in a group, causing the predator to hesitate.

Although zebras are highly social and develop a strong sense of community and safety by staying together in large groups, they also value their freedom. This is evidenced by the fact that they have resisted attempts to be domesticated and refused to be confined. Indeed, the zebra salutes your free-spirited nature and shuns any attempts to be dominated.

May the zebra teach you the value of partnership and creating strong bonds in order to achieve systems of support and security. At the same time, embrace your individuality within the herd and pursue the talents and gifts that make you uniquely you!

The silver plated zebra necklace is lovely in gold finish too.
