Buddies, baby Zebra | Lucy Dickens Fine Art


We all need a buddy right! I experienced the joy of watching this sweet baby zebra while visiting the Ngorongoro crater, on safari in Tanzania. I loved watching her hop around playfully, not a care in the world. Then she seemed to pose just for me, what a gift!

The Oxpecker is often found on the backs of zebras. Not only do these birds keep the bugs down, they also help to clean the zebra too. In this symbiotic relationship, the Oxpecker will fly up and scream in warning when danger is near. While the bird gets all the food it wants, she is an effective warning system for this baby too.

Lucy’s Safari Adventures series will be unveiled at the Phoenix Zoo’s, “Art on the Wild Side” exhibition Feb 1 – May 31, 2020. Artists, Lucy Dickens, Joye DeGoede, and Anne Peyton will showcase their unique visions of wildlife and conservation in the Savanna Gallery, located in the Savanna Grill. Art will be available for purchase and zoo admission is required. A portion of the proceeds benefits the Zoo’s conservation initiatives. 

“Art on the Wild Side” is a great collaboration between The Arizona Center for Nature Conservation/Phoenix Zoo and select local artists to display their work in our new Savanna Gallery. This rotating exhibit enhances our guests’ experience to not only see live animals on Zoo grounds, but also be inspired by the beautiful artwork along the walls of the Gallery, helping us communicate the importance of national and international conservation efforts. Exhibited artwork embraces the mission of the Phoenix Zoo: to advance the stewardship and conservation of animals and their habitats while providing experiences that inspire people and motivate them to care for the natural world.”
