A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do — to own a zebra.

This little girl went to great lengths to get her hands on a zebra, making her own little sister into the striped animal.

In a Facebook video that already has well over 8 million views, the little girl is caught by her mom after drawing stripes all over her little sister.

When mom Amy Herrmann comes into the kitchen and finds her baby girl covered in black permanent marker stripes, she asks the perpetrator why she drew all over her sister.

"What is this?" Herrmann asks.

"A zebra!" her older daughter replies.


"A zebra!" she screams again. "I love a zebra...I love being zebras.".

Meanwhile, her little sister seems content being a safari animal.

We don't even want to know how long it took Herrmann to wash off those stripes!
