Happy zebra poses for the camera like smiling Madagascar character

This happy Zebra has been captured smiling for the camera- just like the zany character from hit children’s film Madagascar.

Marty the Zebra from the film Madagascar is known for his beaming- and this zebra has been caught on camera giving its best toothy grin.

These hilarious pictures were captured by Cathy Withers-Clarke, 47 from Cape Point, South Africa and were taken at the Addo Elephant National Park in the Eastern Cape, while Cathy was on a road trip.

Cathy said: “We were travelling through several of our beautiful national parks.

“I was so surprised when the zebra pulled a face for me. It hadn’t occurred to us that he had taken any notice of our presence at all, but he obviously thought we deserved to benefit from the show as well.

“The first thing we thought of when we saw him prancing about was the scene from the movie Madagascar when Alex and Marty race and play tag, and when he stopped and pulled faces at us we thought he must be auditioning for the next edition of the movie!

“We hadn’t seen anything like this before, and we keep the picture on the wall at home now as it never fails to make us laugh when we walk past it.”
