Mahmoud A. Sarhan thought something looked a bit off during a recent visit to Cairo’s International Garden municipal park.
He saw, and snapped, not your usually looking zebra — or donkey.
Of course the story has been picked up around the world.
Because, you know, not a zebra.
At least not your usual zebra with a black muzzle, smaller ears and black stripes that aren’t smudged.
That from experts around the world — and, well, common sense.
The zoo in the Egyptian capital denies the allegations.
Zoo director Mohamed Sultan telling local radio station Norum FM the animal is not a fake.
