This post has the same exact title, but it is not related in any way apart from the fact that it is also a riddle; all my riddles are (hopefully) original and created by me.


Riddle me this:

We are either black with white,
Or we are white with black.
The latter is believed despite,
The skin our coats set back.

Our patterns are a fingerprint,
Though we have not one hand.
In zig-zags we will always sprint,
With zeal that names our band.

We can be found where Nile lives,
Especially the wild.
In the movie, king forgives,
And Marty reconciled.

Our favourite shapes include a stripe,
Where lions think of grass.
If we did not remain our type,
We all could not bypass.

What are we?

A little hint:
A plural or non-plural answer is acceptable, I am not too fussed. I mean, I like to have a balanced mindset, a bit like the Yin and Yang.

The title is also a clue.

Are you a

Zebra

We are either black with white,
Or we are white with black.

It will look the same.

The latter is believed despite,
The skin our coats set back.

I am not sure.

Our patterns are a fingerprint,
Though we have not one hand.

You can tell what they are by the pattern (the fingerprint), but they have hoofs.

In zig-zags we will always sprint,
With zeal that names our band.

The run and there is a band called The Zebras

We can be found where Nile lives, Especially the wild.

Africa

In the movie, king forgives,
And Marty reconciled.

From Riley in the comments it is Madagascar the movie.

Our favourite shapes include a stripe,
Where lions think of grass.

Savannah

If we did not remain our type,
We all could not bypass.

Endangered.

Title,

I am not sure.

    $\begingroup$ Very good! But quickly, before I say anything more, why can I not award you the bounty for answering my previous riddle? It will not allow me to, I think because I have already accepted your answer. Is this true, do you know? $\endgroup$ – Feeds Jul 21 '18 at 15:51
  • $\begingroup$ I am pretty sure it is this way to let the puzzle have a good chance to get solved and noticed before it needs extra attention. :) $\endgroup$ – QuantumTwinkie Jul 21 '18 at 15:53
