Zebras arrive at Dartmoor zoo, but which one's Spot?
There are enough stripes to make visitors feel dizzy at a world-famous zoo after three new additions arrived at the park.
Three zebras – Zac, Zebedee and, ironically, Spot – are among a number of new arrivals at Dartmoor Zoological Park, the zoo in Sparkwell, near Plymouth, which was given worldwide attention when it became the basis for the film We Bought A Zoo, featuring Hollywood stars Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson.
The zoo's owner, Ben Mee, has overseen the arrival of the African zebras, who will be living in a special wooden enclosure, built after Tesco offered funding.
The new zebras will be on display in the fields in front of the restaurant, offering diners a clear view of an array of black and white stripes.

The zoo has recently seen a healthy rise in customers – despite the cruel weather – which staff at the park put down to the success of the film, which was based on a book by Mr Mee telling his life story, and which has been a major hit the world over.
Last month, it was also reported how three wolves were in quarantine at the site, awaiting their move into a newly designed enclosure.
