According to the Leicester Mercury, James Beech was at West Midlands Safari Park over the bank holiday weekend when the animal posed for the photograph by putting its head through the open passenger window.

We had been feeding the zebras from the window when my girlfriend took a picture. At the exact moment I smiled, a zebra poked his head next to mine and gave a cheesy grin. When we looked at the pictures it looked like the character Marty out of the Madagascar movies."
