Zebrician Changelings has an orange carapace unlike their grey counterparts. Their hind and forelegs are covered in white and black stripes like the cousin of the giraffe the okapi, which they obtained from their original Zebra roots.

They also have a pair of large fangs,a curved sharp horn They have a have a shell on their back like their counterparts but, the blue was replaced with a white and matted with black stripes, and lastly a pair of bright yellow eyes.
What makes Zebrician changelings different from Equestrian Changelings is not only their appearance but their abilities as well, being in the pride lands of Zebrica they lost the need for wings and instead traded them off for increased dexterity , speed, and strength, the only one of their species that has the ability to fly is their queen whos wings which are more for a display of her royal stature are still capable of flight. They tend to use basic magic, such as levitation, and small blasts of magical energy, though this may seem like a hindrance, they compensate for this by using traditional witch craft which they learned from the Zebras and their shamans. They work like termites , constructing large cone shaped hives out in the Savannah, and lastly their most remarkable trait that they posses is the ability to eat through wood and stone with ease, their predecessor gained this ability from observing the termites of the land since the soil was too hard to construct a cave like system by hoof alone
Zebrician Changelings are an evolutionary off shoot of their normal Equestrian cousins. They originated from a changeling that had banished by Queen Chrysalis for treason, she had lone changeling teleported to the hot wild lands of Zebrica where she would face her punishment. Being cast from its hive and forever severed from Chrysalis' hive mind, the lone changeling adapted to the climate and landscape. Eventually the lone creature still needing to feed off of the love of others, but strangely the abandoned changeling found love from a Zebra and soon after established a new hive of her own. After countless generations they are now governed by a new queen by the name of Zecora( and its that in my cannon so if you have an issue then i'm sorry ;p) who has now taken refuge in the ever free forest,where she uses the facade of a zebra which doctor. She is slowly plotting her next step which is creating a portal that will transport her hive to Equestria where she plans to concur the land and take revenge on Chrysalis and take her hive into enslavement and using them as her own troops to take control of Zebrica and Equestria, for banishing her predecessor to Zebrica.
